My Approach to Helping

You are hurting and you find yourself in despair. Maybe you are going through a breakup, a betrayal or maybe you just can't seem to find any motivation to simply get up and do the bare minimum things. Perhaps the job demands, being the caregiver of your children or moving together with your significant other has got you completely depleted, burned out, to the point of giving up on your relationship. You are the expert in your life, and I am the guide that helps you understand, heal, help yourself. I use a variety of methods that are based on neuroscience and work fast. Give me a call now and let's get you having the life worth living!

More Info About My Practice

I have been an expat for the last 16 years and I am originally from Bucharest, Romania. I work (among other issues) with expats that, just like me, have been having life transitions, changed continents, and are from different backgrounds and cultures. I help them integrate this culture into their own and navigate difficult conversations and situations they might be finding themselves in. I help couples with infidelity to heal, recover and get past the emotional injury that their relationship has suffered. It is my pleasure to work with individuals that are currently suffering from depression, anxiety, and other alike issues and help them manage them and create a life where they feel at home in their own bodies and minds. I specialize in couple's therapy, sex therapy, trauma and posttraumatic stress (PTSD), and men's issues.
If this hits home, don't hesitate, call me now for a free 15-minute consultation and let's take it from there!

Specific Issue(s) I'm Skilled at Helping With

I am extremely passionate about the out-of-control sexual behavior, previously knowns as sex addiction. I use an empowering, positive, open, wholistic approach towards it.
