About me

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


I practice Internal Family Systems (IFS) method to access and help with deeply seated traumas of the body and the psyche, to manage challenging life events, and to process experiences that rational mind struggles to understand.

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

I offer in-person and online sessions. To contact me, please use the form below.

What is IFS?

IFS is frequently used as an evidence-based psychotherapy, helping people heal by accessing and healing their protective and wounded inner parts. IFS creates inner and outer connectedness by helping people first access their Self and, from that core, come to understand and heal their parts.  

But IFS is much more than a non-pathologizing evidence-based psychotherapy to be used in a clinical setting. It is also a way of understanding personal and intimate relationships and stepping into life with confidence, calm, compassion, courage, creativity, clarity, curiosity, and connectedness. Lear more about IFS or simply call me to discuss.

What is MBTI?

Myers–Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) is an introspective self-report questionnaire indicating differing psychological preferences in how people perceive the world and make decisions.

  • 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. 



Please write to arrange a consultation.

Thank you! I will contact you soon.
