My fundamental knowledge of psychotherapy and psychology is based on extensive professional and life experience. This allows me to choose an individual set of practices for each client, which meets his or her internal needs.
I'm confident that you can help another person only based on your life experience, combined with professional knowledge. It is very important for me to be fulfilled in different aspects of life, so I can share with others.
I talk with women about pregnancy and maternity, because I am a perinatal psychologist and a mom of three children. I can talk about relationships, because I studied the psychology of relationships and I myself am happily married. I lived through every formative phase of personal development. Each of these phases is inextricably linked with important milestones in my life.
