Let's get acquainted . . .

In therapy we often say that we become our stories and our narratives. Naturally, each story has different versions, something like a Rubik's cube. Our work as clinical psychologists is to help the person align all sides of the Rubik's cube, so that the actual picture makes sense. This in turn will enable the person to live a full life.

My Rubik's cube was aligned a few years ago when early on during my studies and later during my clinical practicum I confirmed that I want to pursue a life which entails "giving" and supporting those in need, people which may have lost their "compass" and direction.

Since then, I have co-travelled with people who happened to face a variety of difficulties such as mood disorders (anxiety and depression), relationship or work problems, physical disabilities and chronic pain, with the goal of finding our sense of direction. "Our", since the context is synergistic. "Our" because we all try to climb this steep mountain called life. It is just that sometimes, we might need a helping hand, perhaps a torch to light up the tunnel, until we find our way out.

As a clinical psychologist, I invest in building a strong therapeutic alliance with "my co-traveller" - that is to build our own boat which we will use to travel. Using empirically validated psychological interventions such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Narrative and Solution Focused Therapy as well as existential approaches, I try to tailor each therapy session according to the person's needs.
