20 years of experience

Hi! I am a licensed clinical professional counselor, located in Southern Maryland. I am a German national and after my first career in biotechnology in Switzerland, I started my second career in counseling in Maryland. I worked for 10 years in public mental health and I am now since 10 years in private practice.

What can clients expect to take away from sessions with you?

During out first session, I will gather more information from you regarding the challenges and issues you are facing, and how you are dealing with these problems. This will help me to formulate a plan how to assist you to achieve your goals.

Explain to clients what areas you feel are your biggest strengths.

Having worked with a variety of clients and different problems, I feel that I often recognize patterns and underlying causes, which help my clients to understand their issues and make the changes necessary to improve their lives.
