I am very aware that a need for therapy in English in Denmark means that you most probably are an expat, an international or in one way or another is navigating with more than one nationality/culture. That can bring both a lot of challenges and a lot of richness to your life. I am here to explore that with you and support you in what is difficult to navigate in.
I grew up in a family of mixed nationality (Polish and Danish) and although the two countries are not geographically very far from each other. I always felt like they were very far from each other culturally. I stopped taking assumptions for granted and it spiked a personal interest for cultural differences. I would be happy to help you no matter your background or nationality, and I am humble towards the fact that I will have to put effort into trying to understand whre you are coming from. If you help me, I will be pleased to be invited into your inner and outer landscape.
Suffering is inevitable. Suffering alone is intolerable

Services I Offer
It is vulnerable and risky to open up and I am aware of how much bravery that requires. Therefore, I will try my best to create a safe space for you to explore what is vulnerable with me.
I have experience with individuals struggling with a variety of problems, whether that be personality disorders, PTSD, going through a life crisis, anxiety, depression, relationel struggles, low self-esteem, eating disorders etc. If your need is outside of my expertise I have a network of psychologist whom I can redirect you to.
Methodologically, I am mainly trained in the psychodynamic tradition but I also find inspiration from Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Narrative Therapy, Compassion Focused Therapy and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy.
Does you relationship need support to guide you through difficulties?
Do you feel like you need help with communication?
Do you feel out of tune with each other somehow?
Did something happen in your relationship that is difficult to leave behind?
There is no problem too big or too small to work through in couples therapy. From the beginning of my studies I knew that couples therapy is my main interest, therefore I have extensive training with couples. I work mainly Emotion Focused (EFT) which means that we will work towards getting you more attuned emotionally to each other - because if you are a team, you can deal with anything life throws at you.
I also offer a couples workshop which is a either 2-3 full day or 8 evenings of psycho-education about how build loving, healthy relationships with each other. Do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions.

Value-based Clinical Therapy
I am a Clinical Psychologist with a Master in Psychology from Aarhus University.
It is important for me that my clinical practise is based on values that I personally agree with. I build my personal life on Christian values such as love for my neighbour, forgiveness and the unwavering value and dignity of the human person, meaning that there is nothing a person can do to lose their worth and right to be fully respected and cared for. That being said, anyone is welcome in my clinique. I will not ask about your religious beliefs unless you would like to talk about it and therefore you bring it up yourself.
I believe in the value of relationships and I think a path to a good life is through giving relationships importance. No man is an island. I also believe in a meaningful life over a painless life. My primary goal in therapy is therefore not symptom reduction but searching for and creating meaning.
I also believe in holistic health meaning that psychological struggles usually also affects the person physically, socially and spiritually. I try my best to pay attention to the whole person.
Last but certainly not least it is important for me that the services I provide are high quality and based on theory and empirical evidence. In order to provide that I receive regular supervision, I participate in courses and teach.
My methodological standpoint and training is mainly psychodynamic and emotion focused (EFT) but I also find inspiration from Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Narrative Therapy and Mindfulness based therapy.
