about me

Qualitätssiegel BDP.png

I'm a clinical psychologist, systemic therapist, supervisor, and lecturer based in Berlin, specializing in music industry psychology and mental health care. With additional training in clinical hypnotherapy, psychodrama, family therapy, and group counseling, I bring a comprehensive approach to my work.


Having worked in various therapeutic and psychiatric settings, including in-home family therapy, psychiatry, and youth welfare services, I've gained valuable experience in understanding and addressing diverse psychological needs.


As a musician, I've witnessed the psychological challenges of the industry firsthand. Special individual and environmental factors are often crucial for success but can also contribute to significant stress and, at times, harm. For almost a decade now, I have combined my expertise working as a music industry psychologist and mental health in music advocate.

In 2016, I opened my own practice dedicated to supporting artists and music industry professionals in navigating the complex demands of their careers. From managing performance anxiety to mediating conflicts and providing strategies for handling media attention and preventing burnout, my focus is on offering tailored support to individuals and teams.

Beyond individual therapy, I collaborate with agencies, universities, and festivals, conducting workshops and lectures to raise awareness about mental health in the industry. Additionally, as a co-founder of MiM-Verband (GER) and active member of  "Music Industry Therapist Collective" MITC (UK, USA, ES, FR, GER) I actively contribute to initiatives promoting sustainability and cultural change in the music sector.
