About Me

As a creative coach, my experiences as a consultant, leader, musician, and writer complement each other. For over eleven years, I have consulted adults on coping with their everyday lives and worked for over five years as the team manager of a psychosocial counselling center. 

I hold a Master of Science in Consulting and Human-Centred Design, a Master of Arts in Biographical and Creative Writing, and a Bachelor of Arts in Social Work. I am certified as a Scrum Master, Product Owner, and UX Professional. I have also educated myself in the areas of new work, leadership, mental health, and mindfulness.

As a musician, I have had the privilege of playing concerts for a total of over half a million people. As a writer, I have been published in the creative and scientific fields, and I am currently under contract with Periplaneta. My current book "Dörte überwinden" can be ordered here.

I continue to write every day and strive to lead a creative life characterised by curiosity, openness, trust, acceptance, and playfulness. By supporting others in finding their creative expression, I have found an incredibly exciting and meaningful task for myself.
