I am a psychodynamic – integrative psychotherapist and clinical supervisor and I am a trained EMDR trauma focus therapist. Balance and simplicity are core qualities I apply to my life and work, as I believe they bring awareness and centeredness in the daily choices we make.
Everything has a cycle – a beginning, a life and an end – and the most valuable element of this cycle is our conscious awareness of the here and now and how we choose to live each step of the way.
I have a great interest in human relationships, their dynamics and interconnectedness, as when we are born our first interaction is a relationship to another. Our families become the first nucleus by which we create those very first impressions that will shape our future – individual and social interactions. It is through these very interactions, I believe, that we may polish the mirror of our hearts and best reflect those inner qualities we all have the potential to shine forth.
In the course of my life I have learnt that when we have negative and unhealthy experiences, especially at a very young age, we learn to develop coping strategies and core beliefs – whether triggered by distress, neglect or trauma – they become core wounds and can compromise our self-esteem and the image one has of themselves, as well as diminish our expectations of life relationships.
By learning to stably create and maintain a relationship with our inner child or higher self, and parent our distress, we can find greater clarity, peace and lightness, affirm our self-acceptance, and anchor our emotional security, to better nurture our life relationship needs.
In my practice as an integrative psychotherapist, I offer a therapeutic relationship that affirms creative renewal, integration and wholeness, by encouraging clarity and mindfulness in the development of self-compassion and awareness of our inner compass that stirs our choice making abilities.
I draw on psychodynamic, existential, attachment – relational, humanistic, trauma, cognitive, transpersonal, neuroscience perspectives and insights, and in my work with children I apply play-therapy modalities.
I work with adults, youth and children face-to-face in long-term or time-limited sessions, I offer therapy in two different languages: English and Italian , and I can help with issues such as:
