After having taught for 7 years at the Faculty of Psychology of an Italian private University, I moved to Northern Ireland where I founded Athena Mental Health which I now direct as the CEO. We offer psychotherapy services and postgraduate training for the licensing of private mental health professionals.

I am a Fellow of the National Council of Psychotherapists (UK) where I lead the ethics committee and offer my services as a Supervisor. At my office in Dromore and once a week in a private medical clinic in Hillsborough, I treat adults, families, and couples. I provide my services both in person and online.

I specialized in neurodiversity and personality disorders. I have experience in working with marginalized and vulnerable groups such as LGBTQ+ clients; counselling the families of people with Borderline or EUPD (Emotionally Unstable Personality Disorder) and marriages with Asperger's Syndrome, OCPD (Obsessive-Compulsive Personality Disorder), victims of domestic violence, sexual harassment and narcissistic abuse. I also provide counselling to offenders, and commissioned expert reports for court cases.

I counsel police officers and can help lawyers prevent burnout.

Currently I am working as a documentary analyst* for private clients and solicitors involved in cases of domestic violence, coercive control, and psychological abuse. *Document analysis is a form of qualitative research that uses a systematic procedure to analyze documentary evidence and answer specific research questions.
