PRIVATE PSYCHOLOGICAL PRACTICE
2014 - present
I have the pleasure and luxury of loving my job. I am working in my office and prefer in person psychotherapy sessions, rarely via Skype. I am seeing clients during the working week, but am flexible during the Saturdays by request. I work with individuals from various ages, with the whole family, with the couple, parents. I am trained in the family systems therapy and I perceive every client as a part of the family puzzle, in which they grew up. During the process of therapy, I identify models of behavior, beliefs and attitudes, transferred through generations and into the present self-image, attachment styles and communication patterns - personal and professional.
My job is to guide the client into exploring all these issues, resulting in an improved quality of life.
