I am 33 years old, a single father of one son, engaged and come from Bad Mergentheim. The desire to understand people better made me study psychology. I became a psychotherapist in order to be able to sustainably improve people’s lives in meaningful, ethical work.
In my work, it is important to me that my clients feel comfortable with me. All living things need good conditions in order to be able to develop well: Plants need good soil, water and light in order to be able to develop. In my work I have made the experience that the groundwork for personal growth is a relationship that is characterized by acceptance, appreciation and compassion. In the first few hours of psychotherapy, you therefore have the opportunity to see whether you feel comfortable with me and would like to take the next step.
If you decide on therapy, I will be happy to accompany you as if you were climbing a mountain. The license to accompany you on this path is my license to practice psychotherapy(state license).
You indicate the destination and should be aware that the journey may not always be easy. From the point of view of depth psychology, the fact that you have not yet been able to reach the summit is due to experiences you had in childhood. These experiences have led to ways of thinking, feelings and behaviors that used to be important and meaningful, but now stand in your way and are responsible for your complaints. These experiences are mostly unconscious so that they cannot be remembered. They are more likely to show up directly in difficult thoughts, fears, physical discomfort or other symptoms. In therapy we get to the bottom of these things and deal with them.
I support you on this journey to get to the source of these obstacles. In addition, over the years I have gathered a lot of „climbing tools“ and experience to achieve this. In addition to the methods of depth psychology, this also includes a perspective that takes into account your current environment and previous generations (systemic-transgenerational) and processes in the body (body psychotherapy) and uses them in order to be able to understand, digest and integrate difficult previous experiences. For particularly difficult experiences, I have trained in trauma therapy (EMDR and currently Somatic Experiencing). If these obstacles can be seen, understood and processed faster and faster over time, you will lose strength and the way to your goal is free. Until then, however, you have to stick with it and be persistent. If everything went well, after reaching the goal, you can go on on your own. We then look back on the common path that lies behind us, reflect critically on what might not have been achieved, thank each other and finally say goodbye.
