Thank you for taking the first step towards seeking support. I know at times it can be a difficult one. Caught up in our daily hassles we often don’t get the chance to listen in on ourselves, to understand what we need, cherish, miss and desire. We develop mechanisms and patterns, some functional others dysfunctional and misleading. I offer Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT, Verhaltenstherapie) in English with specializations in Schematheray and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT). In addition, I am a licensed trainer for Stressmanagement and Relaxation. You can also consult me for a Coaching. I’m licensed to practice psychotherapy in Germany/Berlin.
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy focuses on thoughts and behavior and how these influence your mental health. I integrate the traditional CBT approach with more recent developments in the field of psychotherapy such as Schematherapy and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy.
CBT has proven to be an effective treatment for unipolar and bipolar depression, panic disorder, social phobia, generalized anxiety disorder, obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD), adaptation disorder, and somatization disorder. You can find some general information on psychotherapy and the treatment of mental illness in Germany in the brochure by the German Federal Chamber of Psychotherapists.
For more specific questions, please do not hesitate to get in touch via email/telephone and leave me a message with your name and insurance company. Preferably we could meet in my private practice, and I will gladly also offer online sessions for your convenience.
- The only way out
is through -
Private health insurance
If you are with a private health insurance, please contact your insurance company to find out whether psychotherapy is covered by your contract and if so, how many sessions. Normally psychostherapy can start right away.
Public health insurance
If you are with the public health insurance, you can apply for your insurance to cover the costs of the therapy if you have been declined by at least 5-10 CBT-Psychotherapists who have a direct license for the public health system (reimbursement plan/ "Kostenerstattung").
You can find psychotherapists who have a direct license for the public health system here. If you have been declined, please do not hesitate to get in touch and I will help you with the application for the reimbursement plan. You can find more detailed information in english here.
The cost of a session is based on the German Scale of Fees for Psychotherapists.
