Hi, I'm a provisional psychologist who's recently relocated from Germany to Australia.

In couples therapy, I mainly work with the Gottman model and the Doherty approach, that focusses on changing interactional patterns in couples. I'm currently in training to become certified in Gottman therapy.

I work with married couples in which one spouse is pondering divorce and not sure that regular couples therapy would help, while the other partner is interested in rebuilding the marriage (discernment counselling). In this approach, the goal is to gain clarity and confidence about a direction, based on a deeper understanding of your relationship and its possibilities for the future. The goal won't be to solve your marital problems (yet) but to see if they are solvable.

I offer guidance to individuals who want to improve their relationship without their partner participating in therapy (hopeful partner counselling).

Lastly, I offer regular individual (non-relationship-oriented) therapy.

I'm a member of the Australian Psychological Association (MAPS). I hold a master's and doctoral degree in Psychology from University of Marburg, Germany. In addition, I hold German state licences in CBT as a Psychological Psychotherapist (Psychologischer Psychotherapeut) and Child and Adolescent Psychotherapist (Kinder- und Jugendlichenpsychotherapeut).

I work in English and German and use Spanish as an adjunctive language.

Your message to me will be forwarded to our office manager Kate, who will be in touch with you shortly.

If you are reaching out from Germany, please note that I can only work online before noon (German time) due to the time difference. / Bitte beachten Sie, falls Sie sich aus Deutschland melden, dass ich wegen dem Zeitunterschied Australien-Deutschland nur vormittags (deutsche Zeit) Therapie anbieten kann.

I work on Gadigal and Wallumedegal Country. I acknowledge their Custodianship of Country and pay respect to Elders past and present.
