There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle - Albert Einstein
Key Note Statement : I was born and grew up in Finland and received my medical and psychoanalytical education in Helsinki, Finland. I immigrated to New Zealand in 1990 and have been working in Auckland in a full-time private practice since 1993.
I am a Southern Cross Insurance affiliated provider.
Specialisms : My main areas of interests are in helping people through crisis times in their life and facilitating their adaptation to emerging new life situations. When I say crisis times, I mean, for example:
My experience is that the plans we have for our life practically never working the way we thought, and life takes unexpected turns and then some therapeutic conversations might be useful.
I am very devoted to helping people who feel that they were never really able to grow to their full potential or achieve their full capacity. I am keen to work with professionals and artists and with people who have some kind of (emerging) spiritual awareness. I also like to work with couples and work teams, often with a co-therapist. I provide supervision and second opinions for other health professionals.
