Hi there! I'm Elena, a friendly and open-minded clinical psychologist born and raised in Berlin. Growing up in a multicultural family and having lived abroad for many years, I bring a unique perspective and understanding of diverse cultures to my practice.
With years of training and working as a child psychotherapist, I developed a passion for helping families communicate effectively, not only between parents and children but also within relationships. It was through engaging in meaningful conversations with parents that I found my calling in working with couples.
I am committed to creating a safe and supportive space where couples can explore their emotions, develop authentic connections, and overcome the challenges they face together.
With years of experience, I provide a safe and supportive atmosphere where clients can explore their thoughts and emotions.
My empathetic therapeutic approach is rooted in a diverse theoretical background, combining third-wave behavioural techniques such as mindfulness, and cognitive-behavioral therapy with individuals, as well as differentiation-based couples therapy. This integrative approach allows me to adapt my methods to each client's unique needs and preferences, fostering personal growth, strengthen emotional connections and and healthy communication.
