Growing up and living my adult life in both the United States and various countries in Europe has contributed to my interest in working with clients of diverse cultural backgrounds. My familiarity with the challenges of cultural readjustment has inspired my work with clients facing similar difficulties and challenges. I am fascinated by cultural diversity, and in my work accommodate and respect differences in values, beliefs and ways of thinking.
I hold Austrian licenses for both individual and group psychotherapy (ÖAGG). My approach is psychoanalytic, but I do not work in the traditional manner first introduced by Sigmund Freud. My personal preference is the intersubjective/relational approach to psychoanalysis.
I am a member of the ÖAGG (Österreichischer Arbeitskreis für Gruppentherapie und Gruppendynamik) and the IARPP (International Association for Relational Psychotherapy and Psychoanalysis).
I am also a student member of the Linzer Arbeitskreis für Psychoanalyse and am currently working on my master’s thesis on the philosophies of Jean-Paul Sartre and Jacques Lacan.
