I am a Student Psychologist at Compass Psychology in Helsinki offering counselling services to individuals who prefer to speak in English or in their native language (Lithuanian, Spanish, French or Russian). 


I was raised among cultures, living in Lithuania, Mexico, and Canada before the age of 18, and later as an adult I lived in Australia. I am fluent in several languages: English, Lithuanian, Spanish, French and Russian. Because of my multicultural upbringing, I have always been interested in the psychological aspects of immigration and adaptation to new cultures, also in adaptation to life changes due to an acquired illness and trauma and the process of rehabilitation.


I completed my Bachelor of Science in Psychology (Honours) from the Open University in the UK and currently I am studying in the second year of the Clinical Health Psychology Masters program at the Lithuanian University of Health Sciences, specializing in Neuropsychology. I have completed an internship at a Rehabilitation Hospital in Lithuania and have been a volunteer with during the refugee crisis providing emotional support and referrals to new immigrants.

I am here to help you find more effective ways of coping with your emotional needs and/or feelings of insecurity.
