As a clinical psychologist I help people deal with difficult feelings, such as anxiety, depression, anger and shame. Also to overcome traumatic experinces and 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 quality of life. While we can't change the reality of difficult situations from the past, we can change our view of them constructively. By doing so we enjoy the present and future even better. We can learn to to increase our tolerance of stress and become more competent at resolving challenges. By applying complementary therapy approaches and techniques, we can unearth long-standing behavior patterns or negative perceptions that may be holding us back from experiencing more fulfilling and meaningful life.
