About me

I was born and raised in British Columbia, Canada. Although I deeply love my home country, Germany has been my second home since 2014. 

It is very important to me that I am able to offer my patients the best treatment possible and as such, I regularly partake in supervision sessions with a certified supervisor and attend scientific conferences, as well as further educational/training seminars. 

I have been working in my own practice in Ludwigshafen am Rhein since 2019.
