Integrative Psychotherapy

"The privilege of a lifetime is to become who you really are."

C.G. Jung

Psychotherapy is an act of love that you give yourself when you feel that your life and relationships do not reflect what you know deep down to be possible for you. When you choose to do psychotherapy, this means that you are ready to re-create a life in which you are free, happy and authentic, heal past trauma, and give up behavior patterns that are no longer serving you.

The integrative psychotherapy approach is centered on the therapeutic relationship and combines cognition, emotion, and somatic components, all while respecting your uniqueness and complexity as a person.

I work with adults, adolescents, and couples, both in Romanian and English, in presence and online.

My experience is centered on the following areas:

trauma and post-traumatic stress; anxiety; depression and strong sadness; stress; panic attacks; addictions; loss and grief (death of a loved one, divorce, separation); difficult times in life; physical, emotional, or sexual abuse; unsatisfactory sex life; couples’ problems; existential issues; phobias and fears; psychosomatic disorders; emotional difficulties; problems related to sexual identity and orientation; self-criticism, self-image, and negative body image; shame; eating disorders (anorexia, bulimia, compulsive eating).


If you are a psychotherapist and wish to work with me, I want you to know that I work in a way that is relaxed, warm, and open. I am an integrative supervisor licensed by CPR and EAIP, and my methodology combines transactional analysis, Gestalt, and psychoanalysis, together with trauma work, especially through the body.

Somatic Experiencing®

"Trauma is a fact of life. However, it doesn’t have to be a life sentence."

Dr. Peter Levine

SE® is a somatic approach developed by Dr. Peter Levine for processing emotional and physical trauma and post-traumatic stress.
This approach has the purpose of helping you to access the body memory of the traumatic event, instead of just the story.

Because trauma leaves not only cognitive marks, but also emotional and physiologic ones, this very gentle approach helps you release the internal sensations in order to increase your resilience to stress and reactivate your ability to live in the here and now.

When we experience a traumatic event, the body chooses one of the three responses – fight, flight, or freeze – in order to protect itself. Often, however, because the traumatic charge is too large, we are unable to discharge the physical energy in order to help our bodies to return to a state of well-being, and this energy gets stuck. SE® facilitates the completion of these motor defensive responses, so that our bodies and brains can process the fact that the danger is gone and we can now relax.


EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing)
EMDR is an approach for the treatment of trauma and of trauma-related symptoms (stress, nightmares, post-traumatic stress, panic attacks, apprehension, anxiety, obsessive thoughts, etc.), created by Dr. Francine Shapiro. It is one of the quickest methods for healing trauma.

During an EMDR session, the traumatic memory is processed through rapid, bilateral eye movements that mimic the REM occurring during sleep.

After each set of stimuli, the client is asked what new memory element, sensation, or emotion appears. In this way, internal associations come out, and the client begins to process the memory.

Eventually, the memory loses its power, and the emotional charge associated with the trauma decreases or disappears entirely.

Our brains have a natural mechanism for recovering after a traumatic event. This mechanism includes the communication between amygdala, hippocampus, and the prefrontal cortex. Although traumatic experiences can often be resolved spontaneously, when the trauma is too big, this processing system is blocked. EMDR helps the brain to process the traumatic memories and to release the blockages, allowing natural healing to occur.
