I believe that we heal in a benign environment in relation to others; and that the therapeutic relationship, before anything else, is a caring one.
To be alive and creative in the presence of someone else; to find new words to describe who I am, to say something new to myself
and to others is an achievement, and a source of great joy.
As a bi-lingual psychotherapist & psychoanalyst with a background in the visual arts I know that listening is as important as speaking.

I provide a safe non-judgmental, anti-racist and affirming environment for straight, gay, trans- and gender queer individuals and couples struggling with
anxiety, depression, bereavement, relationships, addiction, obsessions/compulsions, trauma, and sexualized violence.
I work in English and auf Deutsch.
