POR·TO·LAN (ˈpôrtl-ən,-ˌan/) noun historical a book of sailing directions with charts and descriptions of harbors and coasts.
I was trained for many years as a scientist and therefore I still strive to utilize evidence based interventions with my clients; What this means is that I apply interventions that the scientific literature has shown to be most effective.Born and raised in Italy for the most part, I moved across the 'pond' 3 times. It was demanded of me to have a 'classical' education (is there anything else ?) so I painstakingly studied Latin, ancient Greek and philosophy in high school. I subsequently earned a Master's degree in Organic Chemistry from the University of Padua while I was maintaining my 'singing habit' and performing with various bands.
When dealing with 'softer' sciences surrounding the mental health field, the best course of treatment is often difficult to ascertain. I strive to provide a collaborative, empirical, transparent process which adopts the best evidence based approaches to your unique, personal treatment needs. I am looking forward to rolling up my sleeves and working with you!
Finding the right approach is not unlike choosing the right vessel, charting the best route and having the right crew to to set the sails for your journey.
