WHO AM I?
I am a licensed psychologist with a specialization in Psychodynamic Therapy. I have a bachelor’s degree (B.Sc.) in psychology from the University of Darmstadt, Germany, and a master’s degree (M.Sc.) in psychology from the University of Cologne, Germany.
After completing my studies in 2017, I followed further training as a psychologist with a specialization in Psychodynamic Therapy at the Cologne-Bonn Academy for Psychotherapy and received my state-license in 2021.
In recent years I have been able to gain a lot of experience in psychotherapeutic work and have worked in various settings (inpatient therapy, group therapy, outpatient individual therapy, online therapy) and with various disorders. I moved to Denmark in 2022 and offer psychotherapy in German and English.
PSYCHOTHERAPY – HOW DOES IT WORK?
Life is a dynamic process, accompanied by ups and downs. We are not always able to overcome life’s challenges without help. When a crisis arises in our life, for example due to a major life change, a loss, or a stressful event, we might lack solutions to deal with it. This can result in symptoms, which can solidify and permanently grow into mental disease.
In my work as a psychologist, it is particularly important to me to meet you at eye level and to create a trusting, appreciative and empathetic atmosphere. During our work, the first aim will be to understand which factors contributed to your life becoming unstable. Based on this, we will design an individual treatment plan.
Psychotherapy offers the opportunity to discuss and reflect on one’s own experiences and behavior as well as relationship experiences in a protected environment. This reflection process often opens up a possibility for change.
In Psychodynamic Therapy, the development of psychological suffering is understood as a result of unconscious inner conflicts or unresolved, hurtful relationship experiences. These inner conflicts and wounds can also burden us later in life and result in mental illness. The aim of therapy is to uncover these unconscious conflicts, recognize patterns and, by working on and understanding them, find other coping strategies.
In my work, I combine the methods of psychodynamic therapy with methods of cognitive behavioral therapy, imaginative procedures, acceptance-based techniques, and inner child work.
