My Credentials

I’m a Psychologist and a Constructivist and Cognitive Psychotherapist. I have practiced psychotherapy for 15 years and I specialize in techniques like EMDR and mindfulness. I graduated from Turin University with an experimental thesis about Mentalizing Competence in Schizophrenia, which earned a scientific publication.

After graduating I continued my studies in CBT, with a focus on Evolutionism and Constructivism therapy.

In the last 20 years I honed my skills in different fields like Psychological Trauma and Gambling Addiction, becoming a specialist in said areas.

I took part in the field in different emergency interventions and humanitarian events, such as the recent earthquakes in south Italy and massive immigration.

I was a psychotherapist in alimentation disorders during my collaboration with the Bariatric Intervention Unit of the San Donato Group Hospital of Milan.

Over the course of 20 years, I have practiced clinical relationships and psychological rehabilitation in psychiatric and public frameworks; moreover I’m offering psychotherapy in two foreign languages (English and German).

I’m a clinical supervisor and co-trainer in NOUS, a renowned post graduate school for specialization in Constructivist and Mindfulness based psychotherapy.

My Approach

I view psychotherapy as fundamentally a relational, creative and deep work dealing with human suffering and self-seeking intention.

There are a lot of theories and techniques in psychotherapy, but the job with the client is more about building a productive and equal relationship which will become generative.

In my studio clients enter a professional but comforting and familiar setting. My approach is warm and empathic and my attention is totally dedicated to the patients inner requests.

The therapeutic path is made of dialogic stages, cognitive and emotional restructuring, as well as Mindfulness teachings and self relaxation techniques.

In addition, Augmented Psychology with virtual reality, EMDR and trauma therapy will be introduced on a case by case basis.

About me

I’m a curious and sensible person, I love traveling and I’m interested in foreign cultures and etno-psychology. I practice competitive long-distance swimming and practice multiple times a week. I also often spend time taking part in Zen and Mindfulness retreats, in enlightening places where I can recover my tranquility and center myself.


I am an English-speaking Psychotherapist in Milan specialised in psychological therapies for adults, children, couples, families and teenagers
