With my work, I want my patients to emerge stronger from a crisis or a difficult life situation, whether as a couple, as a family or as an individual. I help people to recognize and develop their strengths, boost their self-esteem, develop a different perspective on what has happened and find new strategies for overcoming problems. When working with couples, it is important to me that the partners treat each other with respect and as equals, develop understanding and compassion for each other, learn new communication strategies and either strengthen their relationship or find a way to split up peacefully.

My passion for psychotherapy stems from my own life story, which is rich in challenges and valuable experiences from different cultures and countries. I follow this way with great enthusiasm, passion and dedication. I know from my own experience that it is possible to successfully overcome stressful situations and challenges that life confronts us with, to gain new insights into ourselves and, if necessary, to make a fresh start.

I am married with two daughters.
