Medical experience also includes hours spent in the psychiatric emergency unit and hours working as cognitive behavioural psychotherapist. 

She has graduated the Neuroscience Institute Master in Psychopharmacology and became a trainer in CARe methodology. She is a member in a number of Mental Health Organisations and had participated in different national and international congresses. She tries to integrate all her experiences in the way that she conducts her work, as she considers that a person with mental health problems needs a multiple approach and an individualised  therapeutical plan. Organising CARe Europe Innovation Summit in Bucharest, gives her hope for an easier and more efficient future of case management in Romanian psychiatry.
