About me

Born in Germany, I attended school in both Germany and Belgium. After several international stops, I moved to Melbourne, Australia to study psychology at the University of Melbourne. I completed my Bachelor of Psychology and Master of Educational & Developmental Psychology before beginning my career as a child and adolescent psychologist in a private practice setting. Having lived and worked in many countries abroad, and subsequently experienced reverse culture shock upon my return to my home country, I understand those who are experiencing difficult transitions in their life. I feel passionate about supporting young people’s mental health and emotional wellbeing, and I enjoy seeing my clients' self-understanding deepen with every session. I would love to meet you, so please don’t hesitate to reach out to me!

My approach

I am a registered psychologist with the Australian Health Practitioner Health Agency (AHPRA). I hope to create a therapeutic climate that allows for healing, self-exploration, development of emotional resilience and a focus on value-driven actions that improve a person’s life circumstances. Every session uses a person-centred approach that is tailored to the individual needs of each client. The foundation of my work lies in Acceptance Commitment Therapy — a multifaceted approach that aims to increase our potential to live a full, rich and meaningful life. An important aspect of my work is to help clients develop psychological skills to cope with difficult thoughts and feelings, and their impacts. I provide clients with effective tools to change the relationship they have with the powerful, and sometimes harmful stories our minds tell us. Being mindful of the chatter in our heads can allow for self reflection and self compassion — two essential processes to developing a healthy relationship with yourself.
