I joined SOCIUS in 2005 and have been a partner since 2009.
I was born in 1961 and studied History, Protestant Theology and Journalism (MA). I began my career working for several concentration camp memorial sites. I then spent seven years at the German Federation of Trade Unions (DGB) and held a leadership position there for four years. Finally, I arrived at SOCIUS.
I trained as a systemic coach (artop-Institut at the Humboldt University Berlin, certified by DBVC), Gestalt consultant (with Dr. Wolfgang Looss), health coach/seminar leader for stress management (IEK Berlin) and as a text-based online consultant (Deutsche Psychologen Akademie).
My main focus is on organizational consulting, coaching and supervision, as well as program and process evaluation. I regard the key aim of my work as supporting my clients by enabling them to gain new perspectives and capabilities. The solutions I offer are not ready-made; they are developed together with my clients and are tailored to fit specific situations.
I see my work as value-based; I orientate myself to current research and continuously reflect on my own professional experiences. Furthermore, my work always combines results orientation and process orientation. In terms of methodology, I use systemic and Gestalt consulting techniques, and often work with visualization.
I am registered as:

I love reading, cycling and playing the card game ‘Doppelkopf‘, and I enjoy moments of pure relaxation. I am also a voluntary board member for an association for political memorials (http://www.polmem-mv.de).
My favourite piece of wisdom is loosely based on the words of author and Holocaust survivor, Ruth Klüger: ‘With age comes freedom’.
