I was born and raised in Straubing, a small Bavarian village. I started studying psychology at the University of Bamberg in Germany, and completed my studies with the master in clinical psychology at the University of Leuven in Belgium. During my work in addiction care in Belgium I came into contact with people from various cultural backgrounds and different world views. Therefore it’s important for me that the values of my clients are heard and everyone feels respected. I like to motivate clients to explore their strengths and talents and use them as a source of inner power and self-confidence.
