You can’t go back and change the beginning. But you can start where you are and change the ending.

As an aerospace engineer I have experienced the normal craziness of a highly demanding environment. In addition to my normal job, I was involved in facilitating trainings on topics around work-life-balance and mental health within my team. Over time it became clear to me that I preferred working with people over my engineering tasks and I dared to change my field of work. Starting with nonviolent communication and mindfulness, I found my home in Systemic Therapy. My own experiences with trauma, and the wealth of experience I have gained from living an “unconventional life”, provide the foundation for my professional training as a therapist. I am now supporting adults and children in overcoming big and small hurdles in life through mindfulness trainings or therapy / coaching processes – independent of whether the root of the issue is in the present or in the past.

Systemic Therapy & Trauma Therapy | Systemic Coaching

Systemic Therapy and Counselling views people as an integral part of their relationships and the social systems they move within (e.g. family, couple, team, society). The systemic view looks at the patterns, rules, roles and beliefs within those systems. Its approach is solution- and resource-orientated. Therefore the focus is on strengths, abilities and progress of the individual. The goals of the client are key to develop solution strategies. (Source of German original text:

In Systemic Therapy and Counselling, problems are viewed as an unfortunate attempt to solve another problem and therefore symptoms, that might be considered “ill” or “severe”, are understandable reactions to the outer and inner environment. The aim is to find alternative strategies to resolve the underlying problem and therefore make the current, problematic solution obsolete.

Process | Duration of Therapy & Counselling


Please feel free to contact me by email or telephone. In a short phone call I will clarify with you how I can support you. In our first session we will work on the following questions, among others:

  • What is your current situation and what brings you to me?
  • What would you like to change? And what should definitely stay as it is?
  • What can be the first, concrete steps towards the desired change?
  • Can you see us working together and if so, when should the next meeting take place?

You will use the time between sessions to implement newly developed ideas, try out new behaviour or simply meet yourself differently. At our next meeting we will discuss the first positive changes as well as possible new challenges. If necessary, you can redefine your expectations, ideas or good resolutions with my help.

I facilitate processes around:

  • Overwork (burnout or burnout-prevention)
  • Sleep disruptions
  • Depressive mood or depression
  • Anxiety and worry
  • (Life) crisis
  • Personal growth
  • Trauma – developmental trauma, single-event trauma (trauma caused by one distinct event) as well as complex trauma (multiple distinct events).

Existing clients can take online sessions, should it not be possible to work in person. The initial session will be in person at the practice.

I work in accordance with the ethic guidelines of the Systemic Society.


The number of sessions depends on your needs and is flexible and we arrange the appointments individually – because every counselling and every therapy process is different. The sessions take place at weekly to several-week intervals and last between 50 and 80 minutes, depending on the agreement.

Some counselling / therapy processes only last 2-3 sessions, longer processes can include 10-15 sessions over a period of several months. You are also welcome to define a maximum number of sessions in the first session and together we will work out a goal that can be achieved during this time.


* For people with a low income (e.g. students, interns, people working in the low-wage sector), the hourly rate is individually negotiable.

The services will be invoiced after every session and the payment is due within 14 days.

The cancellation policy and cancellation fees can be found here.

Private Practice – The costs for the sessions are not covered by public health insurance. As a non-medical practitioner (Heilpraktikerin, beschränkt auf das Gebiet der Psychotherapie) I can only offer self-funded services.

The resulting costs are tax-deductible as “außergewöhnliche Belastung”. Please refer to your tax consultant / accountant for further advice. Some private health insurances cover sessions with a “Heilpraktikerin, beschränkt auf das Gebiet der Psychotherapie”. Please check with your insurance, if that is the case.
