I achieved my degree on psychology with first class and honor at the University of Trieste (Italy), where I have also got my PhD. I have practiced psychotherapy since 2002, first in Venice (Italy) and from 2007 in Barcelona. I am a member of the Official Association of Psychologists of Catalonia (Member N-18 366).
In line with cognitive psychotherapy, I consider that mutual respect and cooperation are crucial factors of a help relationship. I also think that thanks to empathy, flexibility and human closeness, usually I achieve to teach to my patients those behavioral and mental tools they need in order to recover.
So far, I have successfully treated a lot of people, most of them with anxiety, depression problems and addictive behaviors.
I collaborate with several psychologists working across Barcelona, Sitges and Vilanova I la Geltrú. The most of them are specialized in cognitive-behavioral psychotherapy. The main idea underlying this type of therapy is that thought and the way we think is what determines both our final emotion and our behavioral reactions..
My professional mission is to do the best I can to qualitatively improve the patient’s life quality. When I treat a patient I always give much importance in using transparent and scientific methods.
Languages and cultures
I have effectively helped people coming from different cultures and with different languages (Spanish, Italian, Catalan, and English). Indeed, during my training across different abroad universities (University of Austin, USA – University of Louvain la Neuve, Belgium – University of Trieste, Italy) I had the chance to enrich myself with many experiences that allow me to take into account the cultural identity of my patients and possible misadjustments, e.g. cultural shock or Ulysses Syndrome.
