With regular participation in training, supervision and intervision I spend considerable effort to ensure ongoing quality of my own work and to continuously extend my professional knowhow.

I see myself as a temporary companion of my clients - assisting you in a difficult situation of your life. My main approach is 'systemic', i.e., I interpret behavior, relations and communication as the result of the interactions of the major 'systems' determining your life as relationships, family, friends, society, culture of origin, family of origin, of course professional, but also 'internal states'. Understanding these interactions, formerly unsatisfactory approaches to overcome one's obstacles (e.g., withdrawal, marital disputes, destructiveness, anxiety, blockages, ...) helps to reactivate and refocus your inner resources and assets and to work out new strategies that are suitable.

Emphasis of my work:

Out of my practice:


Interconnecting previous professional and personal experiences and trainings which had proven to be helpful and efficient for the lifes of others as well as for myself, and connecting experiences with other kinds of activities with my therapeutic work often enrichens my opens ways to additional, enriching resources which can be utilized in psychotherapy and counseling. Parts of it are

Outside my job:

Listening, creating and dancing to music, various kinds of sports, IT, traveling, reading (my domicile is a library, and every bookstore a trap for me), philosophy(ng), religions, occational browsing in the discussion board of my website,
taking time (I turned this art into perfection to an extent that I don't require any utilities for it anymore) etc. etc....

Favorite feedback comments, given by former clients:

"I don't know how you did that, but since we've started,..
I've never felt as good before on such a constant basis!

"You've been the best investment in my life so far."

Favorite quote:

"Whatever you can do or dream you can - begin it.
Boldness has genius, power and magic in it.
Start with it
(Johann Wolfgang von Goethe)
