Psychologist, Counsellor & Coach in Milan

My Credentials

I am a counsellor and chartered clinical and organizational psychologist, registered with the Lombardia Regional Council of Psychologists. My clinical experience began in 2014 as a trauma and organizational counsellor. Since then I have worked with adults and teenagers in various settings including schools, companies, volunteer organizations, higher education, sport teams and the private sector. I am currently in training as a NeoFunctional Psychotherapist at the SEF (European Functional School).

In my experience I’ve worked with different people in different situations, different kinds of diseases and difficulties. I am focused on patient’s needs, aims, offering different type of treatments: long term, short term, coaching and counselling.

My main interest in psychology is an integrated and tailor made approach, mixing different tools and techniques from person-centered approach, gestalt, psychodynamic approach and neofunctional. I place at the heart of my profession the value of singularity, that is, the uniqueness of the patient and the unrepeatability of each session. Mutual trust is essential; the relationship and the alliance are indissoluble values.

My Approach

In my work I intertwine different approaches: person-centered, gestalt, mindfulness, and neo functional techniques.

The degree in psychology came after a long phase of humanistic study of human communication, counseling, coaching and NPL. I am interested in complementary disciplines such as yoga (I practice it, teach it and I also train future yoga teachers), and meditation.

I recently approached the study of anatomy and osteopathy to make my expertise complementary to the study of the states of the self (cognitive, emotional, postural and physiological).

I work with the patient in an integrated way, through the interaction and integration of these levels. Through this approach the person can see, listen and fully understand his/her functions, automatisms and increase self-awareness, change their scripts and progress in his research and self-awareness.

About me

In my free time I take time to read, enjoy yoga, hiking and watching movies. My deep passion for traveling makes me visit lots of cities and countries every year.

Through the journey I find contact with myself, stripping myself of the superstructures and prejudices, finding balance and personal growth through dialogue and acceptance of others.


I am an English-speaking Psychologist, Counsellor and Coach in Milan specialised in psychological therapies for adults, children, couples, families and teenagers.
