You are an unfinished work in progress. One of the good things about life’s challenges:
You get to find out that you are capable of being far more than you ever thought possible.
(Karan Salamansohn)

I am here to help people of intercultural backgrounds and experiences, on their individual path of personal growth and healing, in order for them to find out what they are really capable of.

Coaching & Counseling

As a woman, you may have been told, you can´t have it all. What if you can? What if connecting with your potentials and dreams and living a life you genuinely love is possible? Experience Empowerment Coaching.

Relationships are often challenged by a lack of understanding with and for each other. This can be particularly the case in relationships, which are characterized by cross-cultural influences. In this moment, the special approach of combining Imago relationship therapy with cultural sensitivity, called Cosmopolitan Choice comes into play.

Life, and especially an international life can be challenging, as it is often hard to welcome changes or unforeseen, even burdening circumstances, as a possibility for growth. My International Online Counseling service is aimed at people who want to transform their life´s challenges into fulfillment. Read about International Online Counseling.


When people make burdening or traumatic experiences, the accompanying memories and emotions are stored in the human body. Therefore, the application of body-oriented methods, like Brainspotting, CRM and EMDR is an important part of my therapeutic treatment.

These procedures belong to the body psychotherapeutic methods and can be used complementarily. In the end, they also lead to better recognition of oneself and to learning to treat oneself and others with more love.

My psychotherapeutic services are aimed at all people who want to address burdening problems, situations, or topics in a sustainable and holistic way. This service is especially aimed at people with intercultural backgrounds and experiences. Learn more about the therapeutic methods and techniques here.

Why an Attachment-Based, Culturally Sensitive and Integrative Approach is important – in Coaching, Counseling & Psychotherapy

Individual attachment experiences, how and where we grew up, how we became who we are – all these collective memories design a kind of “autopilot” or “default program” by which we go through life.

They determine the way in which we perceive, judge, evaluate and react to things and situations. In short: Attachment experiences determine our behavior. This is especially important in unfamiliar and challenging life circumstances.

Facing new stages in life or starting a new life in an unfamiliar place, like in another country, whether out of a hunger for adventure, for professional reasons, for a better future or because of flight and displacement, is challenging and is usually accompanied by feelings of loss, sadness, fear, loneliness or even helplessness, shock, and general worry.

Further, when people make great or burdening experiences, the accompanying memories and emotions are stored in the human body. This can show up as a helpful resource or a blockage for future pursuits.

Thus, to (re)build a new and fulfilled life, a coaching, counseling, and therapy approach implementing the complexity of the individual attachment-history and previous cultural experiences, in a mind-body connection, is particularly helpful. Therefore, the application of holistic and body-oriented methods is an important part of my work with you.


Not only, but especially living in Berlin, we are surrounded by different cultural experiences on a daily basis: Whether we run into a Bavarian who has moved to Prussia, whether we work together with international colleagues, whether a great Irish woman wants to build her life together with a wonderful Chilean woman, whether a Mexican opens a café in Köpenick or a Syrian family or Ukraine single mom tries to gain a foothold here. All of them will “suddenly” meet the experiences of the others with their own.

After all, what is most often overlooked in interpersonal and intercultural interaction is what Harville Hendrix (founder of Imago Relationship Therapy) explained: “What is difficult in relationships is – the other one isn’t me!” I would like to sharpen this awareness.

Taking all of this into account, it is this conviction, that lies at the very foundation of my attachment-based, culturally sensitive, and integrative approach in coaching, counseling, and psychotherapy.
