Illnesses, crises, and stress can drag us down and make everyday life a struggle. Therapy can help.

Exploring with a therapist what is troubling you, what is important to you, and what gets in your way can be a great relief. It can open up new ways of coping, and set the stage for working together towards the changes you are hoping for.

I like working with empirically validated methods such as cognitive-behavioral therapy, acceptance and commitment therapy, schema therapy, and mindfulness practices. All these approaches take advantage of what we know about the relationships between behavior, thoughts, emotions and context. The goal is to break cycles that cause suffering in everyday life and to replenish your resources.

My areas of expertise include:

  • Culture shock and cultural adjustment
  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Addictions
  • Loneliness
  • Burnout
  • Relationship problems
  • Chronic mental illness


The cost of psychotherapy is covered by Swiss basic health insurance if the sessions are prescribed by your primary care physician or by a psychiatrist.

Alternatively, some Swiss supplemental health insurances cover a part of the cost. For details, please contact your supplementary health insurance provider. In this case, the cost is sFr. 180.- for a 60-minute-session.

For international health insurance, I am happy to provide any information about my credentials.
