therapy and counselling for
individuals, couples and families in Berlin
I offer therapy and counselling services for individuals, families and couples in Berlin. My therapy approach is based on my training in psychodynamic art psychotherapy and in systemic family therapy. It’s important for me to acknowledge that everybody faces their own unique challenges and questions in life. This also means that most couples and families need to navigate through various different issues. If you are currently living in a country which you weren’t born in or your family members come from different cultural backgrounds, this can mean added stress in regards to communication and feelings of loneliness, loss or anxiety. When a couple or a family member struggles with a transition or with other issues, therapy or counselling can offer support in a safe and reflective space.
I’ve gained many years of experience in working with adults, children and adolescents (esp. teenage girls) from different backgrounds. During my work in different cultures and countries, I became increasingly aware of how important it is to consider parent and family dynamics, as well as social structures, and psychosocial wellbeing as a whole. This motivated me to gain a deeper understanding of couple dynamics and family constellations as a systemic family therapist.
In order to allow for comprehensive understanding and treatment, I adapt to your specific situation and needs as much as possible. I offer sessions for individuals (adults/children/adolescents), families and couples as well as counselling for parents and dyadic parent-child sessions. Depending on your preferences we can use creative methods (art therapy) or we decide just to talk. Together we can discuss what kind of support is the most suitable in your situation.
Besides offering therapy, I cooperate with different institutions and organisations in order to support therapists, social workers and pedagogues through trainings and seminars. I work and consult with colleagues of the international creating links network whenever possible. If you want to learn more about art therapy, check out the creating links podcast.
