As a clinical psychologist, I help people deal with difficult feelings, such as anxiety, depression, anger, guilt and shame. Also, help them to overcome traumatic experiences and sfind ways to grow from them. As a solution-focused therapist, enthusiastic about empovering people, my goal is to help you flourish, uncover your true potential and increase health and quality of life. While we can't change the reality of difficult situations from the past, we can definitely change our view of them, effectively and constructively. We can become more competent at coping in life, resolving various problems and facing challenges. As a result we may enjoy both the present and the future even better.
