About me

I combine research, teaching, writing and lecturing with clinical work as a psycholoogist and psychotherapist for individuals and couples, as well as a supervisor. In research, my focus is on psychodynamic psychotherapy, particularly naturalistically studied with a focus on patient and therapist experiences of therapeutic alliance and helpful/hindering factors in psychotherapy.

As a clinician, I work at the S:t Lukas Clinic in Uppsala, Sweden.

Another area of interest is psychology in culture - existential and psychological questions and issues in film, media and literature. I regularly take part in film events.


I teach mentalization theory and practice, attachment theory and practice and psychotherapy with young adults at the psychological departments at Stockholm University and Uppsala University.


Dissertation title

When psychotherapy does not help ...and when it does: Lessons from young adults' experiences of psychoanalytic psychotherapy. (2017). Download here.


Young adult psychotherapy patients' experiences of psychotherapies where goals were not met, or the patients dissatisfied, were the starting point for an exploration of hindrances in psychodynamic psychotherapy. I analysed the material from a developmental perspective, as well as from the broader perspective of psychodynamic theory, including mentalization and attachment theory.
