About me:

Born in Vienna in 1967, I was brought up in Austria and studied at Vienna University. After receiving a student grant from Ottawa University, I moved to Canada in 2001. Today my husband and I again live in my hometown. Some of my most important values currently are interpersonal relationships, cultural diversity and developing a sustainable way of life. Essential to my psychotherapeutic work are such qualities as trust, mindfulness, appreciation, empathy, authenticity as well as a humanistic approach.
