I am a social pedagogue (diploma) and integrative counselor (master). I was born in 1982 and grew up in Baden-Württemberg. Through studies and work I spent some time abroad - in countries like Israel, Canada and China. I have been living in Thuringia since 2022. In counseling sessions, I see people in a systemic context, focus on resource-activating work as well as on the person's experience of self-efficacy.
