I’m motivated by my desire to help you find a way to a life you feel at home in.
I think the world needs what you have to offer when you are being yourself.
I work empathically and intuitively, so you feel seen, met, and safe. I also think analytically and precisely. Together we can find the core of your issues so you can see and feel results quickly.
I’ve offered group therapy to people with AIDS and psychiatric diagnoses. I have also worked with innovation, creativity, and conflicts for leaders and employees in the public and private sectors. I’ve been a school counselor in tough neighborhoods. And I’ve trained other therapists for the past 13 years.

Many years of academic studies and developing my own methods has given me a strong theoretical foundation that helps me navigate the issues you bring to therapy.
I draw on five psychotherapeutic and psychological trainings and certifications and 30 years of experience to choose the best approaches to help with the issues you struggle with.
I’m always studying natural, holistic healing and European shamanism as well as new neuropsychological research. I combine these tools to meet you with ancient nature-based ways as well as scientific and research-based ones. I work with my own, creative and integrated method, based on Expressive Arts Therapy, Heart Math, EMDR, Dialectical Behavior Therapy, inner child work and hypnotherapy/NLP. My foundation is in expressive arts therapy, which is based on the idea that our strongest resource is our imagination, and that thoughts, stories, emotions, traumas, and behavioral patterns can be expressed and transformed through making art. This can happen through drawing, dancing, playing, singing, or writing.
I came up with Creative Mindfulness in 2004 and it’s been co-developed and published in several internationally published and recognized books on art therapy.
In my cozy private practice in Copenhagen, I see both children, adults, couples, families, and groups.
Do you live far away or just prefer to stay home? I offer both therapy, supervision, and online courses on my secure, high-quality online platform.
My own background is international and I speak fluent English and Danish. I also work well in all the other Scandinavian languages and understand German and French.
I value empathy, safety, authenticity, diversity, and inclusion, and strive to uphold the highest ethical standards in my practice.
