About

Hi! I’m Frank. I am a 32 year-old clinical psychologist and psychotherapist.

I was born in Spain, but spent most of my life in Germany. I studied Psychology in both Germany and Spain and received German licences to practice adult psychotherapy as well as child and youth psychotherapy. I have been trained in Gottman Method Couples Therapy (at level 3) and, presently, work exclusively in couples therapy.

Apart from couples therapy and my licensures, I am trained in a variety of other approaches including parenting, mindfulness, and hypnotherapy. My specialties are working with LGBTIAQ+ people and individuals with a history of traumas.

I work in English (IELTS: C1) as well as German (native) and speak (but not work in) Spanish.
