About me

I have wide experience in working with adults, adolescents and children. In my past I have worked in the international business environment and understand well expectations in the current working culture. That phase in my life was followed by the big change and moved to work in the school with kids under 13 and their teachers and families. During the years I have specialised in children and adolescent psychology and trained to work as a psychotherapist. For psychotherapy I welcome adults and the adolescents over 16 years. As a psychologist I am happy to work with younger persons and their parents. 

In psychotherapy my approach is integrative combining cognitive and solution-focused framework.  In addition, I also work together with my clients in short term therapy frame.

“Sain Tuijan terapiassa itsetuntoni ja itsenäisyyteni takaisin. Sain oivat keinot, joilla kykenen hallitsemaan pelkoja ja ahdistusta niin, että ne enää tuskin vaivaavat. Löysin myös tien takaisin hyväksymään ja rakastamaan itseäni.”
