I have been counselling since 1995. A certified Gestalt psychoterapist after finishing postgraduate studies at Edinburgh Gestalt Institute and completing training at Gestalt Associates Training Los Angeles (GATLA) in 2014. I have received my PhD in social sciences from Vilnius University in 2007. I have attended existential psychotherapy seminars of prof. S. du Plock (UK) in 2010. I continue to attend the annual GATLA psychotherapy seminars in the role of group leader. I do psychotherapy and supervision in English, Lithuanian, and Russian.
