As a certified psychotherapist I work with people in challenging times as conflicts, transitions or psychological disturbances. I offer online and in-person therapy in Lisbon and Berlin in German, English, Russian
My name is Julia and I am a certified psychotherapist and clinical psychologist.
After receiving my masters in clinical psychology from the University of Potsdam and University of Zurich I certified in psychotherapy and psychodynamic theory and practice in Berlin.
After opening my first private practice in 2020 I am currently located between Lisbon and Berlin, offering in person therapy in both locations and online.
As I myself went through relocations early in life and have lived in different countries and cultures, I can resonate with the unique challenges of living abroad and being confronted with new environments (national and corporate wise). I am dedicated to assisting and supporting people in their individual journey of self-discovery and connection with life.
Within my academic research I have been focusing on trauma related disorders, prevention methods for PTSD, interpersonal psychotherapy, intercultural therapy and transgenerational transmission of anxiety disorders. Additionally I joined research studies on Psychedelic Therapy as a study therapist at Charité Clinic Berlin.

After becoming a clinical psychologist I finished a 6 years training in depth and psychodynamic psychotherapy.
Using this approach I believe that the uncovering and exploring of deeper, often unconscious, motives is healing in and of itself. It seeks knowledge of the deep layers underlying our behaviour, cognitions and emotions.
My approach to therapy is yet always individual and integrative, including elements from different schools of psychotherapy. In my practice I take the time to listen closely to your needs and tailor our sessions to meet you where you currently are. Through our work together we will move towards greater understanding of your past and its impact on your life today, this depth of work allows for greater self acceptance and more control over the decisions you make in your life.
Our sessions will be spent working to increase your self awareness while strengthening your capacity to fully engage with the world. Together we will expand your window of tolerance by unpacking the feelings and thoughts that bring you discomfort, leading to a more authentic and comprehensive experience of yourself.
