About me as a therapist

In my work as a psychologist I am focused on creating a safe space and opportunity for my clients to explore their life's challenges while offering tools and guidance to manage and pace themselves. My approach is client centered, positive, compassionate and empowering.

For couples I offer the encounter centered approach, which creates the opportunity for a better understanding of their needs, values, feelings and believes.
The process offers the opportunity for a deeper connection, building trust and patience, which allows a way back into a more appreciative interaction and a more satisfying relationship.

For parents I will provide support to create meaningful and positive relationships with their family members.

As a coach I am using a solution focused approach to open a confidential and safe space for the client, giving them time and opportunity to explore their options and support their growth.

About my therapy sessions

In the first session I will give the client(s) space and time to unfold their story. If this is too challenging, I will offer the clients(s) to support them keeping the focus on the topic(s) of their choice. In my work I integrate different methods, which allow me to adapt to the client's needs. Depending on the topic I might relay on methods from different therapeutic fields, e.g.: cognitive behavior therapy, narrative therapy, compassion focused therapy, emotion focused therapy, person centered therapy, encounter centered couples training, solution focused brief therapy.
The client may always request a change or more information on the matter. For the purpose of psychoeducation I may provide additional material to explore further or give short explanations that can be helpful to create a deeper understanding of a mental challenges e.g. emotional regulation and ways to manage them.

My professional background and knowledge

After studying psychology in the Netherlands and Germany, I graduated from RWTH Aachen University as a "Diplom-Psychologin" (Dipl.Psych.), which equals the Finnish Master of Psychology.
Since then I have worked as counselor mainly online. Every day stress often causes a decline in mental well-being for many of my clients, hence I became a certified relaxation therapist. Through coaching I provide more creative space to my clients to grow and develop at their own pace.

My general goal is to support cultural diversity while raising awareness about the value of mental well-being at work. Through regular training courses I enrich my work and grow as a professional. My work has elements of compassion focused therapy, emotion focused therapy, acceptance and commitment therapy, bodywork (active relaxation, progressive muscle relaxation, autogenic training, mindfulness), encounter centered couples training, solution focused brief therapy and narrative therapy in my work.

Client group

As an expat myself, I enjoy working with international clients, who bring besides their struggles also a rich cultural background, individual needs and coping strategies to our session. I am open to work with youth over 15 and adults of all ages as well as all genders and nationalities.

If we discover during our work together, that a specialized psychotherapist or psychiatrist is needed, I will support the client to get in contact with another professional.
