Welcome

About Me

 

Having a French mother and a German father, I grew up in Germany and spent part of my education in Canada, France and Spain before I graduated in Germany as a clinical psychologist. I moved to Berlin to further train in psychodynamic psychotherapy while working in private practice.

I specialize in the treatment of depression, anxiety, loss of identity and relationship challenges. 

I offer individual and couples sessions in English, German and French. 

 

My approach

By exploring the imprints made throughout one's life story, I seek to rudimentarily seize the complexity of the individual's condition today.  By exploring these representations through a deep and sincere therapeutic alliance, the path towards self-exploration is opened and the contextual foundation for symptoms changed.

 

I am a fully licensed in psychodynamic therapy, which is an insight oriented approach focusing on unconscious processes as they manifest in a person's present behaviour. The goal is to improve self-awareness and better understand the influences of the past on the present. I focus on uncovering unconscious desires, needs and wishes and therefore enabling more inner freedom.  

 

Education

I went through an extensive 10 years long training period to become a psychologist (Master of Science) first and later a psychotherapist with German state license (“Approbation”).
