I’m a systemic therapist with a specialization in Sexuality, Partnership, Trauma and in the counceling for couples with an unfulfilled wish for child. Systemic approaches and questioning techniques are invaluable for my work. Since 2012, I have worked as a sexual therapist for the German Multiple Sclerosis Society in Potsdam.

In my work as a therapist, I attach great importance to talking about the topic of sexuality in an open and relaxed atmosphere, alleviating the sense of shame that is often associated with it. I welcome you to a protected environment where you can talk about your most intimate concerns and find solutions to your sexual conflicts.

Sexuality and intimacy are marked by cultural values and religious rules, by language, background and gender. Culture-sensitive contents will naturally be taken into consideration during sexual therapy and counseling sessions.

As a scholar I am currently working on a volume of essays on the topic of German-Jewish sexual history.

I was born in 1977 in Munich, am married and the mother of one daughter.
