My treatment services

My core area of treatment, CBT, is an evidence-based practice to treat psychological disorders. It is based on an individual functional analysis to identify problematic behavioral patterns or problematic thinking patterns. In therapy, we will carve out the root causes as well as the perpetuating factors of your symptoms – I will engage as an expert of the method and you will engage as an expert of your symptomatology and your individual goals. By doing so, my therapy will always focus on the principle of helping you to help yourself. The goal-oriented approach of CBT tries to find the interdepence between action, thoughts and feelings. I also like to put the focus on emotion-based methods to achieve to the goal of change. 

My treatment services are directed to people with different psychological issues. Amongst others, I treat 

  • Affective/ depressive disorders
  • Anxiety disorders and phobias
  • Obsessive-compulsive disorders
  • Trauma and stressor-related disorders/ posttraumatic stress disorder
  • Eating disorders
  • Addiction disorders
  • Personality disorders
  • Somatic disorders 
  • Behavior-related disorders (e.g. skin-picking, trichotillomania, cleptomania, shopping addiction)
  • Stress management
  • Issues with a low self-esteem 
  • Aftercare of delusional disorders

There  are also other symptoms and issues which can potentially constitute obstacles in your everyday life. Let us find out whether psychotherapy would be useful in your case. 


If you are interested, do not hesitate to contact me via phone or e-mail. I will be in touch with you to make an appointment. 

Before we start with the actual therapy, we will meet for one initital session as well as for up to four probationary sessions. Here, we will be able to get to know each other, will carry out a diagnostic clarification and can discuss any other matter personally. Furthermore, it will be possible to discern whether the chemistry between patient and therapist is right.  


After these first sessions, we can file an application for psychotherapeutical treatment at your cost unit, if applicable. 


Sessions usually take about 50 minutes and will take place on a weekly basis. The overall duration of therapy is dependent on the disorder itself, the development of the symptoms as well as on your cost unit.  


Health insurance of a different country: 

As every health insurance and every country has different rules and conditions, please inform yourself about the coverage of psychotherapy before the start of therapy. If you need more information from me or if I can support you in any other way, feel free to contact me.

German Private health insurance:

In case of suitable indication, private health insurances will pay the costs of psychotherapy. The coverage of the costs depends on your individual contract with the health insurance which is why you should preferably clarify the conditions of your health insurance before the start of therapy.

German statutory health insurance (SHI) :

As this practice has no SHI admission, statutory health insurances will potentially only pay for this private psychotherapy after an application regarding reimbursement claims: There is the possibility that your health insurance is obliged to pay for your psychotherapy in a private practice (§13 Abs. 3 SGB V). If you can provide evidence that you did not get any treatment place in a practice with SHI admission in the foreseeable future and at a suitable distance to your home, reimbursement claims will be applicable. You can find more information on this flyer (in german). I am also happy to help you with further questions and will support you in this matter.

State aid recipients: 

In case of suitable indication, up to 80% of the costs for psychotherapy will be paid by state aid. An additional private health insurance will pay for the additional costs based on your individual contract. Please inform yourself about the conditions of the coverage of costs prior to the start of therapy. After the first five probationary sessions, we will file an application at your aid authority.


You can choose to pay the costs of psychotherapy yourself. The remuneration is based on the official schedule of fees for psychotherapists (Gebührenordnung für Psychotherapeuten (GOP)) (2,3 rate). Formalities with health insurances are irrelevant in this case.


German Armed Forces employees and their family members: 

In case of suitable indication, the costs of psychotherapy will be paid by the German Armed Forces. A cost absorption declaration (San/Bw/0218) filled in by your army doctor is required for this.
