Be the change that you want to see in the world. – Mahatma Gandhi
After growing up in the USA and France, I have been living in Germany since 1982 and spend two months a year in South Africa. I am married to a Protestant theologian and have three adult sons.
I first read „Memories, Dreams, Reflections“ by Aniela Jaffe on C. G. Jung at age 16, and knew that I wanted to work as a psychotherapist. And after several detours, I have ended up practicing sandplay therapy, a method based on the analytical psychology of C. G. Jung.
My training led me from a Masters in clinical psychology from Antioch University in San Francisco through family systems therapy and cognitive behavioral therapy to sandplay.
My path as a psychotherapist has gone from a psychiatric and a psychosomatic hospital as well as a family counseling center to private practice.
My offices are currently located in Stellenbosch and in Munich.
