Since 2008, I have had my own practice in Berlin. My work focuses on crisis intervention, the treatment of severe, chronic, and therapy-resistant depression, as well as therapy for bipolar and psychotic disorders. I also specialize in differential diagnosis of psychological syndromes that occur as a side effect of other diseases. Detailed knowledge of the continual developments in modern pharmacotherapy and the application of treatment algorithms defined by guidelines are the basis of my work.
I began my clinical training in 1995 in the general psychiatric department of Neukölln hospital, in the crisis intervention ward there, and in the Forensic Psychiatric Hospital in Berlin. In 1998, I moved to the Psychiatric Clinic of the Free University of Berlin, where I worked in the Social Psychiatric Day Clinic, in the Outpatient Clinic for Care of the Chronically Mentally Ill, in the Acute Consultation Unit of the Polyclinic, in the Berlin Lithium Catamnesis, and in the Berlin Crisis Service. I completed the neurological part of my training in a practice specializing in multiple sclerosis and cerebral circulatory disorders. Afterwards I returned to the Berlin Charité for three years. During this time, I was in charge of the Psychiatric Consultation and Liaison Service of the University Hospital and the Emergency Department.
