Life is not always easy

… and talking about it helps.  

Do you feel stressed? Unable to cope with everyday tasks? Are you struggling in your relationship, your job, suffer from lack of energy, or from anxiety? Or maybe you are just looking for a safe space where you can sort your thoughts? Let us take a look at what you need.

How I can help

Therapy is a collaborative process. You are the expert on your mind. You know yourself best. I on the other hand can serve you with knowledge, experience and the willingness to get to know you, and understand you. While we get to know each other, we can together take a look at where you would like to go and which paths could take you there.

My promise

As everyone has a different communication style, needs, and preferences, it is my intention to treat you in an open, non-judgmental, and respectful manner, and to do my best to find an approach that can work for you and help you to master whatever challenge you may be currently facing.  If starting therapy feels like a daunting task, rest assured that I understand and that I'm committed to taking the time to gradually build the trust and safety necessary for you to feel comfortable with me.   

 

My Service













* The fees for my work do not get reimbursed by the insurance, I therefore only work privately. I will provide you with an invoice as soon as we schedule an appointment. All appointments can be cancelled free of charge within 24 hours prior to the appointment. All later cancellations will be charged with 90% of the original fee. 

Initial meet-and-greet consultation via phone or online (30 minutes)

Counseling session online or in person (45 minutes)

79 € *


If you feel like we could be a good fit, I would love to meet you. If you are not sure yet, I am happy to answer whatever questions you might have or to see you for a free meet-and-greet appointment. In this way you can figure out whether you could imagine working with me.

***Please note that I will be out of office from May 18th to June 5th. I won't be able to get back to you during this time but promise to reply once I return***

I am a much better counselor than webpage-designer. This may be the reason why I have not figured out how to implement a contact form in English. The button below leads to my German contact form. It is very easy to understand and therefore very non-german-speaker-friendly. Feel free to use it to get in touch with me. Alternatively you can use my email which can be found at the bottom of the page (Impressum).
