13 Years of Experience

Sessions from: 100€.

My Credentials:

I am a psychotherapist, certified emotional intelligence practitioner, trainer and PCC coach. In the last 13 years, in these roles, I have accompanied clients coming from a wide socio-economical and cultural backgrounds, in individual and group settings, in the public sector (Child Protection in Romania), through my private practice and in organizational settings. I currently work mainly with adults, young adults and groups, both in my studio in Milan and online. I am particularly passionate about developmental processes and transitions which impact our identity (from moving country, to becoming a parent or loosing someone dear).

As a leadership coach and consultant, in the last 10 years I have accompanied leaders and high potentials, in individual and group settings, in bringing out the best in themselves and their teams, with a ripple effect on their organizations and wider communities.

I have a Bachelor in Psychology (University of Bucharest, Romania), a University Masters in Train the Trainers and Adult Learning (from the same University). As psychotherapist I have a full training in Experiential Psychotherapy (a humanistic approach) in Romania, and in Transactional Analysis, undertaken in Italy.

I am certified as Executive Coach by the Institute of Leadership and Management and a member of International Coach Federation.

I am qualified as emotional intelligence practitioner for the EQ i 2.0 and EQ 360° tools.

My Approach:

My psychotherapeutic approach is relational and co-created, with a profound respect for the person in front of me and for both their resources and vulnerabilities.

My clinical practice is informed by the theory of Transactional Analysis and its recent developments (referring in particular to the relational, integrative and co-creative transactional analysis). I integrate this with other recent research and best practices from the clinical and business field in general, with a particular interest in the theory of Intersubjective Psychoanalysis, the Theory of Attachment, Neuroscience, Coaching and Bodywork.

I love weaving into my practice creative and experiential modalities like stories, guided visualizations, sand tray, dreamwork, mindfulness and other more cognitive-behavioural tools from my coaching and emotional intelligence expertise. I bring together the best of my clinical skills and organizational experience to help people navigate and overcome the challenges they are faced with, so they can achieve their goals.

About Me:

I was born in Romania where I studied to become a Psychologist and Psychotherapist and where I worked as a clinical psychologist in child protection and as human resources consultant in the business field. In 2012 I moved to Italy, where I continued to work as a consultant, trainer and coach and afterwards resumed also my clinical private practice and continued my professional development.

Today I live in Milan, and continue working both locally and internationally, dedicating my time to my private practice as psychotherapist and coach.


I am an English-speaking Psychotherapist in Milan, Italy specialised in psychotherapy for adults and groups.
