I offer psychotherapy in German and English language.

Psychotherapy for me means first and foremost, in a trusting, appreciative way, listening, accepting, accompanying. If these basic requirements are fulfilled, you, as my client, can perceive and accept yourself more fully. Getting to know oneself - that is what it is all about.

Being a married mother of three children, living in a household with a dog and a cat, I know the ups and downs of life from my own experience.

Together we create space for change, which I support and facilitate through the careful use of various methods and instruments. A portion of humor and the presence of an authentic counterpart are for me, like the salt in the soup, indispensable components of every successful therapy process.

The combination of this personal experience with 25 years of psychotherapeutic practice forms the foundation of my relationship with you.

My practice is centrally located in Thalwil, Canton Zurich.
