I work as a clinical psychologist in private practice. I offer my services to:
Adults with psychological and mental health concerns (e.g., depression, bipolar disorder, anxiety, chronic stress, sleep problems, relationship and adjustment difficulties)
Children and adolescents with psychological, social-emotional and behavioural difficulties
International schools (on a consultation basis at the consent of families)
International university students seeking a proctor for the purpose of administering their final exams.
Typically, counselling takes place in a one-to-one setting on a weekly basis, with each session lasting 50 minutes. The initial meeting is a time when we can both decide if we feel it would be helpful to work together. All information disclosed by you is treated as confidential and will not be shared with third parties without your permission. The only exception to this is the instance where there is an urgent concern for your or someone else’s immediate safety (in which case this would be discussed with you).
Regular Practice Days/Hours: Mondays and Fridays (please inquire regarding current availability) with 48-hour cancellation policy.
Fees and Insurance Coverage:
Private pay available.
If you are privately insured you may be in a position to seek reimbursement of fees paid, however please note that I am not currently listed on the medical registry (Arztregister) as a ‘Psychologische Psychotherapeutin’ and this may or may not affect your claim.
Unfortunately I do not currently accept public health insurance (e.g., TK, AOK). Information regarding access to psychotherapy funded by public insurers is available at the Kassenärtzliche Vereinigung here. An up-to-date description of the process is available here in German, or here in English (however note that this document was published in 2014 therefore some changes may have occurred). Alternatively the German chamber for psychotherapists website is quite useful: https://www.wege-zur-psychotherapie.org. If you would like to be placed on a waitlist for the instance that I am in a position to offer counselling services publicly in the future via the cost reimbursement scheme, feel free to contact me and I will inform you in this instance.
