  • Clinical Social Work/Therapist
    New York

I am a psychotherapist (LCSW-R) with 16 years of experience, specializing in couples therapy and individual therapy for adults. I have extensive experience in treating anxiety, depression and relationship problems, and working with clients struggling with the transition to parenthood 0r work-related concerns. I offer both short- and long-term therapy, and provide sessions in English or German.

I am a Certified Gottman Therapist and I offer couples therapy to anyone defining themselves as a couple, married or not. I have experience working with gay and lesbian couples. I assist couples in crises of any kind, whether they are recovering from an affair, have issues communicating, feel unappreciated or lonely in the relationship, or find themselves constantly arguing, to name only a few. I also work with couples who simply want to improve aspects of their relationship before getting married or having a child. 

I use a combination of techniques in my work, depending on the client's needs, and my style is interactive. As a European living and working in New York, I feel culture plays a significant role in how we address and ultimately resolve emotional concerns. I have enjoyed working with an international group of clients with diverse economic backgrounds, professional experiences and sexual orientations.
