About Me

Tania Goudas

Tania Goudas

My Background

I received my Bachelors and Masters degrees from New York University. NYU’s intensive clinical program is considered one of the best in the United States. In New York, I am a licensed clinical social worker, LCSW, and have an additional post-graduate certification in psychoanalytic psychotherapy from William Alanson White Institute.

The first 12 years of my career were in New York. Working in this diverse city, with cross-cultural issues, helped me to become a more empathic therapist. I learned how to help people tackle some of the toughest challenges we face as individuals.

 In 2013, I moved to Lausanne, Switzerland where I continued to practice therapy and expanded to work more intensely with couples. I use the Gottman Method Couples Therapy in my work.  My education and degrees are recognized by the ‘Rectors Conference of the Swiss Universities’

On a more personal note, I grew up one of six children. My parents divorced before I was a teenager.  I knew from a young age that I wanted to be a therapist. I was always the peacemaker in my family.  Those experiences shaped me and gave me the desire to help people resolve interpersonal conflicts.

 I am an American and Greek citizen, so I’ve split my life between Europe and the United States. I am married to a Swiss native so I understand the challenges couples may face when merging cultures. Outside my professional career, I love to travel. I’ve used my skills as a therapist to volunteer in Kenya, Belize, India and the former Yugoslavia.
