Ich bin fest davon überzeugt, dass jeder Mensch das Potenzial hat, die Auswirkungen seiner schwierigen Lebenserfahrungen zu überwinden. Ich hoffe Sie auf Ihrem Weg zur Heilung von Depressionen, Angstzuständen, (komplexen) Traumata, Missbrauch und anderen psychischen Herausforderungen zu begleiten dürfen. Ich habe Erfahrung in der Arbeit mit Einzelpersonen und Familien mit unterschiedlichen kulturellen Hintergründen. Meine Expertise ist es, diejenigen zu unterstützen, die mit traumatischen Erfahrungen zu kämpfen haben.
Als Deutsche in einer multikulturellen Ehe habe ich ein besonderes Verständnis für Schwierigkeiten hinsichtlich kultureller Herausforderungen in familiären und gesellschaftlichen Kontexten. Ich habe ein tiefes Verständnis für die Verbundenheit von Körper, Emotionen und Seele und die Auswirkungen von Leiden auf den menschlichen Geist.
Ich biete einen holistischen Beratungsansatz an, der an Ihre Persönlichkeit angepasst ist. Ich bin als EMDR-Therapeutin (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) sowie in Spieltherapie und Narrativer Therapie zertifiziert. Eine positive therapeutische Beziehung ist mir wichtig. Ich biete daher eine kostenlose 20-minütige Beratung zum Kennenlernen an.
ACCEPTING CLIENTS NOW! I firmly believe that each person has the potential to overcome the effects of their difficult life experiences. I am committed to walk alongside you on your path towards healing from depression, anxiety, (complex) trauma, abuse, and other mental health challenges. Providing a safe, non-judgmental environment, I tailor my methods to your needs. I love and have experience working with individuals and families from a variety of cultural backgrounds. My expertise is in supporting those struggling with traumatic experiences as well as difficulties related to cultural and relational contexts.
I have had the honour of working for many years with a wide range of age groups from multiple cultures. Having obtained a deep understanding of the interconnectedness of body, emotions, mind, and soul and the impact of adverse experiences and suffering on the human spirit, I provide a holistic counselling approach adapted to each individual and family.
I am certified in EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) Therapy, as well as Play Therapy and Narrative Therapy. Building a nurturing, compassionate therapeutic relationship with you where you can feel heard and are comfortable to share your concerns is very important to me. I offer a free 20-minute consultation to see if we will be a good fit.
