Hometown: I grew up in Germany and moved to the United States during my graduate training.
Practice philosophy: I integrate Cognitive Behavioral Therapy with mindfulness and other evidence-based treatments and techniques, like Acceptance and Commitment Therapy. My therapeutic mission is to collaboratively work through challenges while building a life you value. This hard and courageous work requires a safe, warm and supportive environment.
Best part of my work or a patient visit: Working with patients has not only inspired me professionally, but it has shaped my values. I get to see the best side of humanity: people being honest, working hard, and trying to get better as people, friends, partners and parents.
Why I became a provider: I started my studies in cognitive psychology exploring how emotions affect our perception and thought processes, which lead me to the clinical question of how thoughts affect emotions and psychopathology. Once I started working with patients, I knew I wanted to help with applying the science to clinical work.
