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.
Finding our way through life can sometimes be a tough business. You feel stressed, overwhelmed, sad, angry, or anxious. You don’t like yourself. You feel stuck in your life. You see recurring problems in your relationships but you can’t figure out how to break the pattern. You’ve had experiences in the past that interfere with your ability to cope today. You’re using coping strategies that you know aren’t good for you, but you don’t know how to stop. You may also be from a different country, adjusting to life in the US. I have lived in Europe and Africa, and have lots of insight into expat life and immigration.
I offer an eclectic approach that combines insight into how and why certain patters emerge with influences from mindfulness, cognitive-behavioral approaches, and experiential techniques. I'm particularly interested in trauma therapy, disability and expat issues. I help you get to the root of your issues so that you can make deep and lasting change.
Counseling is a second career for me. I’ve had my share of ups and downs, and have greatly benefited from therapy myself. I know it works, and at this point in my life, I have a lot of experience that I can bring to bear for your benefit. Just by coming to this website, you’ve taken a first step. Let me help you with the next ones.
