How would you like to live a more vital, fulfilling life and reduce the effects of stress and anxiety that keep you stuck? My focus on stress reduction, wellness and restoration of balance through integrative mind/body approaches to health will help you move towards the goals you value by providing you with the space and the tools you need.
Such approaches include mindfulness-based psychotherapies, including Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, a tailored use of meditation and body awareness techniques with an emphasis on Being in the present moment, as well as suggestions for lifestyle adjustments, in accord to your wishes, beliefs and preferences.
I am also interested in existential issues like aging, transitions and losses, relationships/communication problems, and managing changes.
Being mother tongue Italian, I am happy to offer bilingual services to Italian-speaking clients.
My professional experience includes working with people suffering from chronic mental illness, struggling with addictions, anxiety, depression, sexual/physical abuse; adult children of alcoholics, war veterans, college students, women, families, couples, adults and adolescents.
I have guided and supported my clients towards resolution of difficult issues and fulfilling life changes. I am hoping you will afford me the privilege to help you as well.
