Hi, I’m Alina

A German Psychologist (Psychology, MSc.) and Psychodynamic Psychotherapist in Training.

While there are evermore “hacks” to “find” ourselves, I’ve noticed people often end up feeling more lost than when they started. That’s why I started looking for ways to understand how we become who we are and why we do what we do.

What could be better for that mission than perennial theories that seem to stand the test of time? My favourite: psychodynamic theory – the backbone of psychodynamic psychotherapy.

I got my Master’s of Science degree in Psychology (with a focus on Clinical and Health Psychology) and started following my dream to become a psychodynamic psychotherapist.

Right now I’m working as a psychologist in a psychiatry on a private psychodynamic ward. It turns out it’s exactly as interesting and hard as I’ve imagined. And there is nothing I’d rather be doing.
