Professional title

I am a psychiatrist and an EMDR – Europe  accredited EMDR – therapist .

I am not a psychotherapist, which is a protected title, and therefore I don’t have Kela – qualification, which means that I can´t provide the rehabilitative psychotherapy of the Social Insurance Institution (Kela).

However, Kela provides reimbursement for part of my fee because I am a doctor.


I provide psychotherapy for adults in Finnish, Swedish and English from the framework of trauma – and EMDR – therapy.

More information about trauma therapy: and about EMDR:

I neither prescribe medications nor renew prescriptions nor write medical reports for Kela benefits or other benefits but focus solely on therapy.

The vision of my therapy work is a harmonious body-mind-spirit – wholeness.


Because we people are so different and we all, even we therapists, have a unique profile for both weak points (read: challenges) and strong sides, it is a good thing that there are many different kinds of therapists.

Most important is to find a therapist who believes that she/he can help, who is present, who receives you and meets you in a respectful and compassionate way, and who you believe you can collaborate with.
