Undergoing psychotherapy still is not common for a lot of people. Despite having the motivation to change it requires some courage. Especially, the courage to have a concious look on your daily life with all its obstacles and problems, thereby examining yourself, your past, your relationships etc. This in-depth examination of one’s thoughts, feelings, fears and wishes can provide useful insights in pursuit of positive change.
As a licenced clinical psychologist and psychotherapist specialized in cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), I'm here to actively assist you in finding customized and individualized strategies for increasing satisfaction, stability and balance in your life. We'll work at your own pace and by the premise „therapy as assistance for self-help“ – because realizing the daily application of what has been learned in therapy is in fact a task that requires a lot of self-responsibility. To me, a trustworthy cooperation is as important as an open-minded atmosphere, in which one feels free to share unsual or even seemingly weird things. Besides, I consider myself being creative and also practical at the same time, so I like to work with smart, concrete goals, that we'll break down into interim steps. That way, we can work on long-term progress and changes that are going to last.
For my areas of expertise in CBT: I specialized in ADHD, depression, autism, schizophrenia and psychosis, chronical pain disorders (especially chronic headache), eating disorders, anxiety disorders (especially panic disorder and (unusal) phobias) and therapy that focuses on coping strategies in dealing with neurological disorders or neuropsychological deficits.
