Personal history: I was born in Finland and did my medical degree at Helsinki University andhad my psychoanalytic and psychiatric education in Helsinki. I immigrated to New Zealand in 1990 and have been working in Auckland since 1993.

Areas of interest: My main areas of interests are twofold: Helping people to grow to their full potential and to achieve in their life what they are meant to achieve and have a life that will leave them with a feeling of having no regrets when they get old.

The second area of my interests is to help people through crisis times in their life and facilitate their adjustment to emerging new life situations. When I say crisis times, I mean, for example:

  • Times of relationship break-up
  • Changes in work situation
  • Health crisis, for example, physical illness or mental breakdown/breakthrough.
  • Retirement crisis, menopause, empty nest
  • Death of a loved one
  • Immigration or moving to a new place and job
  • Emerging awareness of a lifelong sorrow and unhappiness
  • Dealing with one’s self-defeating and self-destructive tendencies
  • Problems in intimate physical and mental relationships
  • Extreme sensitivity and feeling vulnerable, lonely, and raw; different from other people
  • Unsuccessful or unfinished previous psychotherapies

I am also happy to work with professionals and artists, and with people who have spiritual awareness.

I work with couples and work teams and provide supervision and second opinions for my colleagues.
