Clinical Psychologist providing individual counseling and psychotherapy for adults and adolescents. Registered with Belgian Commission des Psychologues and Fédération Belge des Psychologues. Psychotherapy in English, French, Romanian, Spanish.
Psychotherapy in English, French, Romanian, Spanish.I hold degrees from the University of Chicago(BA/MA) and Institut Catholique de Paris (DESS Clinical Psychology).I have experience working in private practice as well as in institutional settings (psychiatry and social work).
Having also worked in human resources in organizations I am also familiar with business environments.
I work with a wide variety of issues such as anxiety, depression, post partum depression, issues related to pregnancy and parenting, difficulties in relationships, divorce, adjustment to a new country, self-esteem, bereavement, psychosomatic disorders, eating disorders, menopause, emotional dependency.
Sessions with a psychologist provide a completely confidential, safe and non judgmental environment for discussing what hurts.The process of psychotherapy aims to bring about change within the individual. We cannot change the people around us but we can try to change certain things within ourselves.
Personal change can influence our environment in a positive way.I use a psycho dynamic approach in psychotherapy. This means we work in depth on current issues as well as on unresolved issues from the past. We try to identify patterns, work on expression of feelings and emotions, on interpersonal relationships, confront painful feelings and experiences. We try to gain self awareness, insight and self acceptance.
It is possible to make one or several appointments just to get a professional opinion or decide to engage in the process of psychotherapy.I work within a network of English and other foreign language speaking psychiatrists and health care professionals to whom I can refer if necessary.
