Psychoanalysis, Psychotherapy and Counseling in Cologne
All services that I offer to my German-speaking patients and clients are also available in English. If you are interested in psychoanalysis, psychotherapy or counseling, please feel free to contact me.
I am entitled to invoice all German statutory health insurance funds – if you are insured with one, the costs of therapeutic measures within a certain framework are covered by the public health care system. Of course, I also treat privately insured or self-pay patients. The costs for counseling beyond medical treatment are usually to be paid by the client.
You can visit me in my private practice in Cologne, alternatively we can arrange appointments via video chat. Here, however, it must be said that I am deeply convinced that psychoanalysis requires the physical presence of analyst and patient in one room. Furthermore, due to legal requirements, I only work as a physician in Germany.
For this reason, I only offer counseling based on psychoanalytical methods via video chat, not psychoanalysis or medical treatment; if in doubt, let us clarify in a personal conversation what I can do for you. The used technology is compliant with the German, European and US-American (HIPAA) regulations concerning the privacy and security of patient health information, which is a top priority for me as a health care provider.
Although I work exclusively in Cologne, Germany:
for the convenience of my international clients I offer alternative contact details in the United States as well, where my office is available by mail, telephone and fax. If you want to send me a fax, please make sure to mention my apartment number in the address line.
