English-speaking Psychologist, providing evidence-based therapeutic care tailored to your request for help.
I am a native English-speaking psychologist based in Utrecht / Amsterdam. I am a registered psychologist in The Netherlands and a member of the Netherlands Institute of Psychologists (NIP) working with individuals with psychological complaints and difficult personal circumstances.
Within my work I utilize a holistic approach to treatment, taking into account each individual's life circumstances and goals for treatment.
Overall, I bring an empathic, collaborative, non-judgemental approach to my work and I am highly committed to helping my clients overcome challenges and begin to heal from psychological distress.
I graduated from University of Sussex with a BSc in Medical Neuroscience (2011-14), before undertaking a research master program (MSc) in Clinical Neuroscience, with a specialisation In Neuropsychology at University of Maastricht (2015-17).
For three years (2017 - 2020), I have worked at a private, international clinic in Limburg where I provided adults from the international community (expats, military personnel) with psychological support for a wide range of clinical disorders (depression, anxiety, trauma, addiction), as well as insight-oriented therapy for personality disorders. Additionally, I am also providing psycho-education and treatment for addiction in order to support relapse prevention. I started working within private practice since November, 2020.
What To Expect At Your Visit
Therapy starts with an intake session where we collaboratively explore and discuss the problem(s) or life circumstances you wish to focus on. A high emphasis is placed on building a supportive therapeutic relationship and open atmosphere for treatment. We will then formulate a treatment plan, outlining specific treatment strategies in order to support you in achieving your goals.
We will then work on the agreed treatment goals in subsequent sessions, using a range of psychological interventions in order to promote a reduction in symptoms and / or improved insight into underlying complaints. Moreover, we will regularly evaluate treatment to ensure treatment progress.
I implement a wide range of evidence-based therapeutic interventions, in accordance with your request for help and treatment goals, including:
Cognitive-Behavioural Therapy (CBT)
Schema Therapy (ST)
Mentalization-Based Treatment (MBT)
All online therapy sessions take place via a secure, HIPAA-approved video conferencing application.
You will receive a link prior to the session to log in to the online therapy space. The application is mobile friendly, and therefore permits flexibility in terms of access to therapy.
It is also possible to make use of a blended approach, where we combine face-to-face and online therapy.
Please contact your insurance provider to enquire about coverage for my services. In some cases, a referral letter from your GP or doctor is necessary, as well as a treatment plan which I provide for every client.
All new clients will be asked to provide some basic background information and sign an informed consent form prior to the start of therapy. All forms will be sent out to you in advance.
You may cancel your appointment, but please inform me 24 hours prior to the session so that we can make alternative arrangements. A standard fee is charged for missed or cancelled appointment without a 24 hour notice.
