About me


Having a French mother and a German father, I grew up in Germany and spent part of my education in Canada, France and Spain before I graduated in Germany as a clinical psychologist. I moved to Berlin to further train in psychodynamic psychotherapy while starting my private practice.

I specialize in the treatment of depression, anxiety, questioning of identity and relationship challenges.

I offer individual and couple sessions in German, English and French. 

My Approach

My approach

By exploring the imprints made throughout one's life story, I seek to rudimentarily seize the complexity of the individual's condition today. By exploring these representations through a deep and sincere therapeutic alliance, the path towards self-exploration is opened and the contextual foundation for symptoms changed.

I am fully licensed in practising psychodynamic psychotherapy, which is an insight oriented approach focusing on unconscious processes as they manifest in a person's present behaviour. The goal is to improve self-awareness and better understand the influences of the past on the present. I focus on uncovering unconscious desires, needs and wishes and therefore enabling more inner personal freedom.
