Das Leben kann machmal einfach schwierig sein. Du füllst Dich überschwemmt, überfördert, ängstlich, traurig, oder ärgerlich. Du magst Dich nicht. Du kommst irgendwie nicht voran im Leben. Es gibt Verhaltensmüster in Deinen Beziehungen die immer wieder auftauchen, ohne dass Du es hinbekommst, sie zu verändern. Vergangene Erfahrungen kommen zwischen Dir und Deiner Fähigkeit, mit dem heutigen Leben klar zu kommen. Deine Überlebungsstrategien bringen eher Probleme als Erleichterung, aber Du weißt nicht, wie Du damit aufzuhören sollst.
Mein Ansatz zeilt in erster Linie darum, die Quellen Deiner verschiedenen Lebensmüster ans Licht zu bringen, damit Du sie leichter verändern kannst. Ich nehme auch Einflüsse von Achtsamkeit, kognitive Verhaltenstherapie, und Erfahrungsorientieren Therapien an.
Counseling ist für mich eine zweite Karriere. Ich habe meinen Anteil an den Höhen und Tiefen des Lebens gekannt, und Psychotherapie hat mir sehr geholfen, als ich in einem sehr schweren Zustand war. Meine persönliche Erfahrung ist jetzt meine wichtigste Ressource, die ich für Dein Wohlbefinden einsetzten kann. Du hast schon den ersten Schritt genommen.
People come to me because they enjoy having a safe and non-judgmental space to be truly themselves, in which they learn and experience a different way of being. If you are experiencing anxiety, depression, trauma, relationship issues, low self-esteem, addictions, disordered eating or any other difficulties that prevent you from fully living your life, I can help. While immediate relief from symptoms is almost always a goal, my approach also helps clients safely understand, confront and deal with the sources of their problems. I serve clients from all ethnic and religious backgrounds, and welcome clients from the LGBTQ+ community.
I offer a mainly psychodynamic approach with influences from mindfulness, cognitive-behavioral approaches and experiential techniques. I'm particularly focused on trauma therapy, disability and expat issues, and am a trained EMDR clinician. I help you get to the root of your issues so that you can make deep and lasting change.
As your counselor, my only interest is to help you achieve your goals and get the most out of your own life. I want to delve into your strengths as well as your challenges. You are in charge. If you're unsure of whether or how counseling can help, or if you want to get to know me a little better, ask for a free consultation with no obligations. Let's talk!
