About me

*VACATION: 21.12.2023-27.12.2023*
I can help you break out of your self-limiting patterns and make way for your confident self, that is able to achieve your goals and be happy. To facilitate this, I offer an individual aproach for each online therapy that takes into account your individual goals, wishes, problems, resources and personality traits.

Besides my Psychology degree, I have completed acting training and also obtained several qualifications in the area of happiness psychology, relationship dynamics couple and sexual therapy, neurolinguistic programming and systemic consultancy. Additionally I work as a psychologist and LGBTQIA+ protection officer in a refugee facility and have received further training in these areas.

As a lesbian myself it is important to me to explicitly state tat I offer couples therapy not only to monogamous cis-heterosexual couples, but also to lesbian, gay, non-binary and polyamorous couples. As a part of the LGBTQIA+ community I have taken specialized trainings on issues commonly and specificly experienced in such relationships, so I can be better equiped to support members of the community. Gender and the type of the relationship do not determine whether a relationship can be happy and successful. Culturally sensitive approach is also important to me.

My approach

Very often the patient's individuality is not taken into account when creating a therapyplan which can lead to unsatisfying results. That's why I believe in taking an individual approach with every client that takes into account their individual goals, wishes, problems, resources and personality traits.

Together we would work on your cognitions and behavioral patterns to change the way you think and feel about yourself, about others and about the world.

My particular area of expertise in online therapy according to the Alternative Practitioner Act is the treatment of social phobias or social fears.

Are you short on time and want to get the most out of your sessions? No problem! I would be happy to take a few hours after our session and create session summaries for you that contain our findings and new ideas. You would also receive worksheets with more information on your particular issue, tools and/or exercises. Please feel free to contact me if this is of interest to you!

An individual session lasts 45 minutes, a couple session lasts 60 minutes.
