Formalities aside, hi. I'm Inge, it's nice to meet you. Thank you for stumbling upon my profile in the middle of a thousand others, I appreciate you taking your time to know a bit more about myself. I have to be honest though, I won't know how to solve all of your problems. If you came looking for answers, I might not be able to offer them. Therapy is a gruesome process where you often leave a session with more questions than when you started. It'll make you uncomfortable at certain times, wondering if you should even keep doing it - it's all part of the process.
That's why I can't promise you the answers you seek, I may end up only giving you more questions. What I can promise however is that I will listen. I will offer you my empathy and do my best to make you feel safe and welcomed. With me, your thoughts and feelings will be honored. They'll be given the attention they not only need but deserve, even if the world says otherwise. During a therapy session with me, you'll be given a safe space to be who you are without any judgments. Nothing you say, feel, or express will be judged. There's already so much judgment going on in the world around you and even in your own head, we don't need more of that in therapy as well.
To me, everything that makes you who you are matters. From the trauma you experienced as a child to your favorite current song, all of it matters and can be discussed in therapy if you wish to. There's no topic that's too silly or irrelevant to be spoken about. It's your space, you fill it however you wish to and I'll make sure that as long as you're with me in a session, you will feel safe. I can't promise you answers, but I can promise you this.

Grief & Loss
I have great experience and focused most of my career in dealing with topics such as: depression, suicidal ideation, anxiety, trauma, grief & more. I didn't necessarily choose these areas, I'd say they found me instead - just like how the Jungian theory found me and then I found myself and my practice in it.
As a Jungian Therapist I'm fascinated by how our minds can translate the issues we're facing or have faced in the past into dreams, therefore I work frequently with dream analysis in my practice. You'll often hear me asking if you had any dreams that week, and if you did, to narrate them so that we can discuss it's elements during our sessions. Whenever I ask the ''dream question'', patients try to pick the most fantastic dream they had to tell me, and while they can be fun, I've come to realize that sometimes the most ordinary dreams we have can be the most meaningful. To me, no dream is too silly to be narrated in therapy and I'll listen to them all with the utmost care - whether you're slaying a dragon or simply making coffee in the afternoon.
I often work with Art Therapy techniques which may involve asking for a drawing, a painting, a poem, and things of the sort depending on the patient. My main instrument of work however is to simply listen. In therapy, you'll be given a safe space to express yourself without any fear of judgment. It'll be a space where you can talk as much or as little as you want, about whatever topic you wish to discuss. It's a place where you can cry, laugh, curse and feel upset as much as you want, a place where all your feelings will be respected and honored. And when a difficult situation appears and you feel lost, we will work together as a team to figure things out.
It's said that therapy is the place you go to become who you've always been. We can do that together. Don't you want to find it out?
