Your Unique Needs
In my practice, I meet people in all life situations. Some work well in everyday life and only need a push in the right direction. Others have more serious mental disorders where emotions and feelings are more severe, and thoughts and actions constitute a repetitive and painful pattern that is difficult to get out of alone. You are the expert of your own life, and my role is to help you sort and safely navigate those thoughts, feelings, and experiences.
Your mental health and well-being are important
When you feel that you are not feeling well, depressed, or having difficulty coping with everyday life, I am here for you. Together we can find solutions to your problems and I can give you tools that will make everyday life a little less heavy and overwhelming.

EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing) uses bilateral stimulation. This therapy has been shown to streamline the treatment process with respect to many different mental disorders, such as traumatic experiences, psychosomatic symptoms, eating disorders, phobias and emotional blockages found in anxiety and depression disorders, among others. In short, this form of therapy involves processing something that is perceived as difficult and replacing negative thoughts related to this, for example, the idea "there must be something wrong with me", with the reinforcing positive thought "I am good enough", perceived as true.
Short Term Psychodynamic Therapy
Short-term Psychodynamic Therapy – Affect Phobia Therapy – is an evidence-based therapy method that directly targets relational difficulties and problems regulating affect/emotions. Research shows that most, if not all mental disorders, come from a lack of mastery of our various emotions. (jfr. The thesis: Understanding Affect in Psychotherapy, 2013, written by researcher and psychologist at Modum Bad, P.G. Ulvenes).
Sensorimotor therapy is a body-oriented therapy without touch. The importance of a body-oriented approach can be briefly explained by the fact that traditional psychotherapy primarily addresses cognitive and affective elements of the experiences we have (thoughts and emotions), but rarely works directly with bodily elements. This is despite the fact that different experiences and trauma imprint deeply on the body and many symptoms are bodily driven. It is therefore crucial to understand how different experiences and trauma experiences leave bodily traces (fr. website: Sensorimotor psychotherapy - Modum Bad, 22nd sept.2011).
