Method and philosophy
I consider Existential Analysis as the primary lens through which I see psychotherapy, people and our lives. On a practical level, it offers specific methods to work with various difficulties including fears and anxiety, dependency, depressive states, relational problems etc. My extensive training in body-related approaches allows me to ground the psychotherapeutic work in the body and offer practices that help maintain the results. I offer both short- and long-term processes depending on a specific situation.
I also offer Dance Movement therapy both as a part of verbal therapy and as a separate process depending on the questions at hand.
My work has been greatly enriched by my experience as an interpreter in private sessions and group trainings with the best of psychotherapists of my own and other schools. As a result, my approach is technically quite eclectic and offers flexibility depending on the needs of a particular client.
