About me

I am a psychologist and psychotherapist member of the Ordine degli Psicologi del Lazio (Italian Association of Psychologists). I am also affiliated with the Associazione Italiana di Psicologia (Italian Association of Psychology).
I obtained a master’s degree in Psychology, the PsyD degree, and the PhD degree in Dynamic and Clinical Psychology at Sapienza University of Rome. Furthermore, I was appointed as honorary judge at Juvenile Court of Rome.

Research topics

I authored a number of scientific and popular publications on several psychological topics, such as sexual orientation, homophobia and minority stress, trauma and dissociation, and bullying. I co-authored with Vittorio Lingiardi the Linee guida per la consulenza psicologica e la psicoterapia con persone lesbiche, gay e bisessuali (Italian lesbian, gay and bisexual psychotherapy guidelines) promoted by the Lazio chapter of the Italian Association of Psychologists and acknowledged by the National Council of the Italian Association of Psychologists.

Practically every adult who experienced unnecessary suffering in childhood has a story to tell about someone whose kindness, tenderness, and concern restored their sense of hope.
