„The curious paradox is that when I accept myself just as I am, then I change.“
Overview in English
update 01/2023: unfortunately, i don’t have availabilities at the moment, and do not keep a waiting list.
I’ll take this note off my page again as soon as new availabilities open up. Thank you.
I am a clinically trained and licensed psychodynamic psychotherapist, and offer modern psychodynamic psychotherapy (depth psychology) in my private practice in Berlin Prenzlauer Berg.
Using an integrative, client centered approach, I provide individual therapy and counseling in english language for clients who suffer from issues related to stress, depression, anxiety, bereavement difficulties, struggles with personality traits and self-worth, or psychosomatic conditions.
Psychodynamic therapy helps to understand, examine and effectively work through underlying dysfunctional and often self-sabotaging patterns of thought, emotion and behavior, that are the root causes of psychological difficulties. Through regular one-on-one therapy sessions i support you on your journey towards healing, personal growth and authentic self expression, so that you can out-grow the original difficulties and find a new sense of balance, self-love and freedom.
A respectful, trusting and authentic therapeutic alliance is the fundamental basis for a successful therapy. My work approach is based on scientifically proved methods as well as helpful insights and techniques from the field of psychotherapy research, developmental psychology and consciousness research, and also influenced by many years of direct experience working as a psychologist and therapist in various mental health institutions, as well as having worked as a psychodynamic therapist for the past five years.
Private health insurance
Private insurance policies usually cover the complete cost of psychotherapeutic treatment. Please contact your insurance company to find out to what extent psychotherapy is covered by your contract ( i.e. how many sessions at what rate).
German statutory health insurance
If you are insured via statutory health insurance (public health insurance), you can apply for your insurance to cover the costs of the therapy only if you have been declined by at least 5 psychotherapists who have a direct license for the public health system (reimbursement plan, „Kostenerstattung“). You can find psychotherapists who have a direct license for the public health system here ( https://www.kvberlin.de/60arztsuche/schnellsuchep.html). To prove that you were not able to receive therapy through the public system, please write down the names of the therapists you contacted and the date you contacted them on.
If you would like to meet for an initial consultation, to get a feel of my approach and to see whether you would like to work with me, I offer 50min counselling sessions for new clients at a reduced rate of 40 Euros (self-funded if you are in a public health insurance, or refunded in case of private insurance) . In that first session we can get to know each other a little, explore your current situation and decide what might help you best at this moment, and we can plan the necessary first steps towards a successful therapy.
Please do not hesitate to get in touch for further questions regarding the procedures, and for assistance with the application for the reimbursement plan.
The cost of a session is based on the German Scale of Fees for Psychotherapists (GOP) and is currently 92,51 €.
For any further questions, or to make an appointment for an initial consultation, please get in touch via phone or email.
