For all mental health concerns, Bard College Berlin offers its students the services of a professional counselor: Susanne Baberg holds the German Approbation as Psychological Psychotherapist (VT), Masters degrees in both Psychology (Dipl. Psych) and Psychotherapy (M.sc.) and is certified in Trauma Psychotherapy (MIT) and Emergency Response Psychology (BDP).

To set up an appointment, students are asked to email Susanne Baberg at counseling@berlin.bard.edu. Counseling takes place at the Student Center (Kuckhoffstraße 43, upper floor) and on Wednesdays.
