My clinical interests are broad and general, and I am mainly working with individual psychotherapy and psychoanalysis. My research interests lie primarily in the fields of countertransference and the psychotherapist’s subjectivity, both in the sense of how the psychotherapist’s personality manifests in the contact with the individual patient, and the ways the psychotherapist is affected by the ”pushes and pulls” of the patient in the therapeutic interaction. More specifically, my research so far has focused on general patterns in the therapist’s reactions and feelings in the encounter with the patient.
