Life And Trauma Informed Coach Specialist, ACC, BCC
Trauma has had a profound and personal impact on my own life. I was born and raised in Germany in the postwar era, and my childhood adversities impacted me into adulthood. It was no surprise when I began my professional coaching journey that I immediately gravitated toward coaching from a trauma-informed perspective.
I am passionate about traveling & exploring different cultures. I have had the amazing opportunity to live in Paris, Munich, Berlin, and Los Angeles. I am bilingual in German and English.
Besides my ACC with the International Coach Federation and the Board Certified Coach certificate, I hold a MA degree in Journalism with minors in Psychology and Sociology. I completed the Life Coach Specialist Training and Resilience Training in 2020 with the Institute for Life Coach Training. I am part of the two years Timeless Wisdom Training (TWT) program with Thomas Hübl that focuses on trauma work. I am a member of the Global Witness Program of the Pocket Project.
Recently, I published a memoir about my childhood in postwar Germany. "Freeing Rapunzel" is about transgenerational trauma and how I freed myself from my parents' suppression.
