Psychologic counseling in English

About me

I'm a Friuli Venezia Giulia licensed psychologist. I attended university in Trieste (bachelor degree) and in Padua (master degree). I just finished attending the psychotherapy school "Centro di Psicologia Dinamica" in Padua. 
I am a member of AIAT (Associazione Italiana di Analisi Transazionale) and EATA (European Association of Transactional Analysis) and EMDR Italia. 

My theorical approach is Transactional Analysis (TA) integrated with other theories (such as Psychoanalysis, Cognitive behavioural therapy, Gestalt therapy, , Constructivism, PNL, EMDR).

My approach

I am convinced that everyone has the potentiality of growth and change.  Client and psychologist work together, setting the goal of their work and sharing the responsibility of the outcome.
My style is empathic and non-judgmental.

I work with people who have a variety of problems, including
  • Anxiety disorders (general anxiety, panic attack, phobias...)
  • Mood disorders (depression...)
  • Somatic symptom disorder (headache, stomach ache... without an organic cause)
  • Low self esteem
  • Relational problems (with family, at the workplace...)
  • Difficult moments (after an event or because of a specific situation)
  • Confusion, indecision 

How it is going to be

After initial sessions devoted to exploring the problem that made you contact me, we'll define your goals for treatment: it will be our compass during the next sessions to go in the right direction. 

What I'm going to do:
  • I will attentively and empathically listen to you;
  • I will ask questions to better understand the problem and what you really want;
  • If necessary, I will give you information ("psychoeducation").
What I'm NOT going to do:
  • I will not give you prepackaged solutions;
  • I will not judge you nor I will diminish your experience;
  • I will not impose my opinion on you.
Each session will be 50 mins long, in which all my attention will be dedicated to my client. 

Psychological and psychotherapeutic sessions are health services and can be added in your tax allowances submitting the income tax return.

Covid 19

I follow the guidelines of the Ordine degli Psicologi del FVG about the Covid-19 emergency. The surfaces are sanitized after each session.  Hand-sanitizing gel is available.
