Clinical Psychologist / Gestalt therapist
I’m specialized in attachment theory, relationships, and psychedelic integration therapy. Counselling and consultations for individuals, couples and groups in English and Finnish.
I have lived most of my adult life abroad. Therefore, I have personally witnessed the many challenges and troubles related to the life of an expat. I have studied in a variety of countries in Europe acquiring a culturally sensitive mindset which I aspire to incorporate into my practice. I have experience working with people of all ages, nationalities and backgrounds. I did my clinical psychologist work placement in a closed prison, where I worked with inmates. I'm passionate about music, gaming and the research of altered states of consciousness + psychedelic integration therapy.
I believe all 'maladaptive behaviors', whether manifested in one's life through stress, isolation, addiction, depression, anxiety or various 'disorders' (eg. personality or eating disorders), are merely creative adjustments to one's environment. In my work, the goal is to become aware of these patterns and behaviors, how they emerge in the relational field in the present moment. I have several concepts of interest in addition to attachment, such as identity/self and gender, creativity/self-expression, self-confidence and sexuality.
