I have always been fascinated by human psychology: ‘how’ we make decisions and the way we develop our life. I first focused my studies on Social and Organisational Psychology gaining a bachelor and master degree from the University of Padua (Italy).
In 2011 I started working as a research assistant for the same University within the Empower Daphne Research Project lead by professor Ines Testoni, the aim of which was to test the healing efficacy of psychodramatic techniques with women victims of violence. See my publications.
During the same period, the interdisciplinary field of gender studies and feminist epistemology fascinated me, and in 2015 I graduated with the Erasmus Mundus Master´s Degree in Women's and Gender Studies (double degree from Utrecht University and University of Granada).
After some years digging into research methods and living in different cities such as London, Vicenza, Granada, Utrecht, I wanted to centre my work where my passion and curiosity lies the most: to work with the human psyche, the soul (Psyche in Greek means
'soul'). I specialized in Cognitive Behavior Therapy, Psychodrama, Psychosomatic Psychotherapy -click to know more- and Jungian Analysis. My clinical practice is located in Amsterdam but I also work online with people from all over the world and I speak Italian and English during sessions.
