I carry out Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy and Schema Therapy in English and German for individual persons and couples. My main areas of therapy concentration are Anxiety Disorders & Phobias, Burn Out, Depression & Mania, Fear of Flying, Internet Addiction, LGBT Issues, Male Sexuality Issues, Obsessive Compulsive Disorders, Personality Disorders, and Psychosis. In most of my therapy sessions I implement the methods of Mindfulness as an accompaniment to my work. My patients thus far have enjoyed this and have also benefited from the effectiveness of mindfulness.
I am a native of racially and culturally diverse southern California and am of German and Cherokee descent. I have been living in Germany (Mainz & Berlin) since 1996 and speak the language fluently. I also have a very good understanding of the German culture as well as for the many others within Europe.
