About me

About me

I hold a Ph.D. in Jungian psychology and archetypal studies. 

My life experience includes living in Latvia, Denmark, the United States, and South Africa.


After 20 years of working in a complex multicultural business environment, I now devote myself entirely to serving individuals seeking psychological well-being.

Education
  • Ph.D. in Jungian Psychology and Archetypal Studies (Pacifica Graduate Institute, USA)

  • MA in Human Development
    (University of Maryland, USA)

Experience
  • Depression, sadness, anxiety, phobias, relational issues, traumas, low self-esteem, and other emotional struggles. I support clients in their explorations into the deepest layers of the psyche to regain a sense of balance.
     

  • Painful emotions, like anger and shame, when relating to the world around. I invite clients to explore their thoughts and feelings, reflect on conflicts and difficulties, and develop emotional resilience and relational skills.
     

  • Relational issues, low self-esteem, and depression. In consultations, we aim to reconize negative patterns of thoughts, feelings, and behaviors formed through earlier experiences and to create better-serving approaches for current circumstances.
