Care Philosophy

Every therapist has a unique way of working, but what mostly predicts success in therapy is the relationship between a patient and therapist. It is important to be comfortable with your therapist and feel safe to share painful feelings and intimate details of your life. The experiences in a therapy room can be quite unalike: a quiet exploration of the patient's inner world; an opportunity for strong emotions to find their relief; an attempt to deal with very painful feelings and traumatic experiences. Each therapy is unique because every patient is special. I believe that people are very resourceful, and my job is to help them reach their healthier and creative side. I see the seeds of a brighter future in sometimes dark present of my patients, since a crisis almost always has a potential for growth. Therapy can be short or long, but every time it is a road to the unknown. I admire patients' ability to fight for their happiness, to have courage and strength to come to therapy.
