About meTherapy, Counseling and CoachingWhat I offerCross-cultural CompetencePublicationsContact

I have lived in the USA, Ecuador, Chile and 14 years in Brazil and have been doing psychotherapy for over 20 years with families, individuals and couples.

I have worked since 1993 in German, English, Portuguese and Spanish at the Psychologische Beratungstelle für Ehe-, Familien- und Lebensfragen and in private practice. My private practice has been open since 1996. In 2004, together with two colleagues, I edited the book, “Therapie und Beratung von Migranten: Systemisch-interkulturell denken und handeln”.

My specialty areas are the problems of immigration and integration, as well as, couple therapy. In 2005 I began to use an approach in working with couples which I find very effective, EFT (Emotionally Focused Therapy - www.eft.ca ).

I work as a Systemic Individual and Family Therapist, a tiefenpsychologisch fundierte Psychotherapeutin (in-depth psychotherapy). I am experienced in working with clients who suffer from burn out, depression, trauma, anxiety, eating and obsessive-compulsive disorders, sleep and concentration problems, as well as from problems related to adjustment, loss, separation, self esteem, adaption, work, study, couple and family relation problems, migration and cultural integration. I have years of experience in clinical work and licensed both in Seattle, Washington and Germany.

I have a license (Zulassung) which allows me to charge all insurance companies.
