Psychological Online Therapy

Dr. Janina Botsford

Clinical psychologist and therapist in Berlin

My name is Janina Botsford, I am an English speaking therapist with an American and Croatian background. I work with individuals  from around the globe presenting with a variety of different social and emotional difficulties. 


I guide my clients from crisis to...

Personal development

To overcome crises means to overcome blockages towards personal development. Together we will analyze your personal blockages, transform them and help you increase your resources.

A sense of coherency

A sense of coherency describes how we understand the different pieces of our lives to create one coherent picture. Especially in times of crisis, everything may seem chaotic. In our sessions, you should learn how to understand yourself better and make sense of the steps and choices you make in life.

The restoration of purpose and meaning

Studies show, what truly makes us happy is to find purpose and meaning in what we are doing on a daily basis. Let´s explore together what you find meaningful and how you could express that more in life.

There is a potential in every individual to adapt and evolve.

Find grounding in your life and move into your future as a healthy and free individual.

I specialize in...

Depression is a common, yet serious psychological condition. It is characterized by severe feelings of sadness, hopelessness, and a loss of interest in activities that the individual used to enjoy.

Anxiety can take different forms and can be experienced in different situations by different individuals. While some people may feel anxious in social situations, others may worry about the future or experience panic attacks in seemingly random situations. Typical symptoms of anxiety are hyper-arousal (increased heart rate, shortness of breath, sweaty hands and feet, muscle tension), inability to concentrate, irritability and being more fatigued than usual.

After experiencing a traumatic event (an event that is overwhelming an individuals capacity to cope, e.g. accidents, loss of beloved ones, having ones personal and intimate boundaries crossed) some individuals develop post-traumatic stress symptoms. These kinds of symptoms present as re-experiencing of the traumatic event, irritability and outbursts of anger, being easily startled, having trouble concentrating and sleeping.

„The quality of our relationships determines the quality of our lives“ is what my biggest inspiration Esther Perel states. Thus, nurturing this most important of our goods and healing and repairing when there is conflict or other relationship difficulties is one of the main focus points in all of my therapies.

I treat a multitude of other psychological issues and the above described are what I specialize in.

What my clients say*

Online Therapy helped incredibly in solving my relationship issues.

Rita F.
First I did not know if online therapy would be the right thing for me as I usually prefer face to face contacts. However, after a couple of minutes I realized that it almost felt like being in one room together. I can really recommend it.
Selma B.
I see my anxiety now as a helping friend pointing out to me that I might need to take a break.
