No, not at all. People who ask for help know when they need it and have the ability to ask for help. Recognizing that you are in an emergency is a great act of awareness and requires courage.
Everyone needs help from time to time. Sometimes when we are in difficult times, our strengths or our ability to react is inhibited and we struggle to see how we can get out of it.
During the sessions, I will help you to become aware of what is happening to you and I will actively help you to rediscover your inner resources.

The difference is that I have the training and experience to support you professionally. A mental health professional can help you approach your situation in a new way: I can teach you new skills and different perspectives, I will listen to you without judgments or expectations, and I will help you to listen to yourself with compassion. Furthermore, the therapy is completely confidential. You will not have to worry about what others may think or the effects your thoughts can have on them.
The sessions will offer you a protected space where you can also give voice to the words that are painful to hear, and where you can explore your deeper truths.

Drugs alone cannot solve all of your problems. Drugs treat symptoms, which sometimes can be necessary and useful. Our work together is designed to explore the root of the problem, deepen your behavior and teach you strategies that can help you achieve your personal and / or relational goals.
We will evaluate together whether the choice of a drug therapy is necessary in your case.
As a psychologist, if drug therapy is necessary, I can put you in touch with excellent psychiatrists who will be able to prescribe the necessary drugs and who can also monitor your improvements.
In such cases, a combined approach works best.

Because each person has different problems and goals for therapy, the therapy will be different depending on the individual. We will define together how best to work together.

Unfortunately, I cannot answer this here. Everyone’s circumstances are unique and the time that therapy can take to enable you to achieve your goals depends on your desire for personal development, your commitment and the factors that drive you to seek therapy in the first place. In addition, there is variability in the process and processing times of what will arise through the therapeutic process.

I’m happy you want to get the most out of your sessions. Your active participation and dedication are fundamental to your success. After all, we only see each other for one session a week (or less). It is the work you do outside of our sessions that will really help you see your personal growth and development.

My goal is to make you independent as soon as possible.

With such a wide base of education and techniques to draw from, and being very flexible and empathetic, I do not always have the same style with all patients or between sessions. I tend to be very pro-active in communication with you, in order to facilitate and speed up the exploration process.
You will feel at ease and you will have the opportunity to explore how you feel and reflect in a whole new way. As an artist, if appropriate and welcome, I may also introduce art therapy rechniques in our work together.
The sessions are deep but can also be dynamic and energetic. Expect to feel highly in touch with your truths, and to feel safe in the exploration process.
