Counseling and therapy work best when you feel safe and comfortable with your therapist. That's why I offer a free  initial consultation for you to find out if we are a good fit. There is no obligation. During the initial consultation, you decide whether you would like to continue and return for regular sessions.

  • Initial consultation: 30 minutes - always FREE and with no obligation
  • Assessment for individulas: Performed during regular sessions in the beginning
  • Assessment for couples: The initial assessment for couples requires a one time 90 minute session
  • Sessions: Regular sessions are 60 minutes.
  • Special arrangements:
    • Extended 2 hour sessions can be arranged if desired for individuals and couples
    • Convenient lunch sessions are available to fit into your work schedule
    • Same day sessions may be available - please contact me as soon as possible
    • I am fluent in German if you prefer to conduct sessions in German


  • All services are private pay (I do not currently take insurance)
  • You may pay with cash, check, money order, any major credit or debit card and NFC enabled devices
  • Couples and family members may split payments and payment methods among them
  • Please note that payment is due in full when services are provided


Finding out about fees should not make you feel uncomfortable or cause anxiety. Transparency and simple pricing make it easy for you to make an informed decision about coming to therapy. 

  • A standard therapy hour for individuals or couples is $110
  • Sliding scale rates may apply for those who qualify based on income and circumstances
  • Please note that the initial assessment for couples requires a 90 minute session at $165

 *All amounts are in US$
