Psychologist – Gestalt therapist – Couple therapist


I graduated with a degree in Psychology from the University of Florence with a graduation thesis on dynamic Psychology about narcissistic relationships. 
I was trained in Gestalt therapy in Rome and then I improved my training with GATLA (Gestalt Associates Training Los Angeles).

In 2004, with Raffaele Frisone, I founded C.I.P.O.G. (Centro Italiano di Psicoterapia ad Orientamento Gestaltico) and in 2007 we developed a special program to work with couples in couple's therapy. 

Its related website, contains insights, papers and some audio-interviews which describe the process of our method during those years. 

As a freelancer, I provide individual and couple's sessions and I have a private practice in Florence, Prato and Sesto Fiorentino.
I have organized many workshops in Rome, Florence and Rieti about Identity, Relationships and Change, and Raffaele and I both organized the international workshop on Couple's Therapy and Gestalt Therapy which C.I.P.O.G. presented in Italy from 2007 to 2014.

My work is dedicated to improving the relational skills in individuals who are constantly in contact with the environment.

I consider the freedom of being who we are a profound occasion of existential research  and I am personally and professionally engaged in the development of the "Encounter" concept that is an inspiration principle for a relationship based on respect, responsibility, hope and difference.

I have written many papers about Gestalt Therapy and Gestalt Philosophy and I co-authored with Dott. Raffaele Frisone of " C'era una volta…e vissero quasi sempre felici e contenti". Verso una nuova cultura della relazione di coppia"(2009)

Explorespect is the result of my personal research during the last five years.
