About me:

I obtained my first postgraduate psychology qualification in Germany in 2013 and completed a Master in Clinical Psychology at ACU Melbourne in 2019. Both in Germany and in Australia, I have gained experience in private and public mental health settings, which included in-patient and out-patient settings, community mental health settings, university clinics, and a perinatal mental health service. I have been working with individuals with a broad spectrum of symptom diversity and severity, including attachment-related issues in both individual therapy and groups of various formats. I am also able to provide therapy in German.

How I will help you:

Providing a warm and safe space for people of diverse backgrounds is my objective, in which we will go at your pace exploring your current problem and discuss ways in which therapy can be most helpful to you. I look at therapy as a mutual process of discovery, where perhaps patterns, beliefs, feelings, longings, but also importantly your strengths can come to light. In this process and based on your existing strengths, I can support you in developing more self-compassion and a greater understanding of the ways in which your mental health difficulties came about or why they linger, support you in processing feelings, as well as in discovering new ways of coping.

My three favourite things:

  • Quality time with loved ones
  • Spending time in and connecting with nature
  • Preparing delicious, healthy, and nutrient dense meals
