"The way I approach therapy is a bit like this metaphor: We are each climbing our own mountain called life. The only difference however, is that from the mountain that I am climbing, I may be able to see the safest, or the most interesting route for you, help you identify any obstacles and get them through, in order to continue to your destination".
"My commitment, looking through your own window, is to create a fertile ground for the change you desire in your life. Through the use of effective therapeutic interventions which will be based on empirical knowledge and the most modern scientific findings in the field of Psychotherapy, the aim is self-improvement but also personal development and self-awareness in general."
"My philosophy is based on the creation of a therapeutic relationship characterized by acceptance, respect, trust, honesty, and empathetic understanding combined with the use of evidence-based interventions. Hence, I am dedicated to the individuals’ self-awareness promotion, commitment to a life in accordance with their values, and the exploration of the meaning of life”.
"My therapeutic approach takes into account the presenting problem, the patient’s request, expectations, goals and strengths. I work from an integrationist’s therapeutic point of view with a strong focus on practical changes and finding one’s meaning in life. Furthermore, it’s vital for my work to understand my patient’s philosophy of life and/or help them develop one."
