I work with individuals and couples that wish to be supported on their path. I have a practice in Nieuwegein near Utrecht (The Netherlands) and a virtual practice space for online video sessions accessible from all over the world. You are welcome to either of these healing spaces.
Life is constantly changing and we are asked to move with it. Sometimes it becomes too much to handle alone or it is just helpful to use professional support to complete the process faster and more effectively. You want all your energy back, you want to find new creative solutions for your current situation, and you can. Psychotherapy can help you become aware of what you want, what is bothering you, how to deal with it and actually do it.
I can describe my way of working as follows: a short-term therapy that is tailor-made for your needs and where you determine the goal and the limits of the dynamic process. The causes of your problem are brought to the surface and faced with a solution-oriented approach.
The core of the Integrative approach in which I was trained is that people are versatile and effective treatment takes this into account and uses different knowledge, methods, and intentions with flexibility in favor of the goal of the client.
You learn to influence your feelings and to feel strong and at ease in your shoes. You can choose more and more in freedom how you react to your reality and how you can influence it.
My Italian background leads to a multicultural composition of clients. The most honest profile of mine can be found in the words of my clients: “You supported me in my growth process, helped me to feel my strength again”. “In the very first session, you gave me tools that already helped me become more focused.” “This therapy gives you answers from within yourself that you did not know you had.” “Your way of listening and giving feedback was pleasant and” to the point “. You kept my attention on the important things”. “The conversations with you felt very familiar. I felt at ease and safe “. “You were attentive, insightful and skilled at listening.” “Through this form of therapy, I have been confirmed that everything is already within me.” “I was very lost when I first came to you, and the sessions have helped me immensely to go through this last stage and end up in one piece”. ‘Because she is empathically strong, I was soon able to open up during the sessions without too much hesitation. She is also straightforward. Exactly the approach I need in this phase of life! Just focus completely on yourself! ‘
We can meet online for sessions. I have been using zoom successfully for years. Experience shows that a very effective connection can also be established online between therapist and client. I have also successfully run EMDR and active imagination sessions online.
Self-confidence: not having confidence in what you can do, difficulty in recognizing and using your talents and capacities for your goals and ambitions. Purpose: finding meaning in life, a direction that gives you satisfaction. The desire to feel that you matter and the world would miss you if you were gone. Conflicts: sometimes they are inner conflicts that give the feeling that you cannot make decisions, sometimes they are difficulties in relationships with others, at work or at home. Conflicts cause pain and consume a lot of energy. Relationship Problems: When love gets tough and you and your partner can’t get out of the impasse. Communication is difficult and emotions dominate.
