How does therapy

with me look like?

We'll start therapy by taking plenty of time to understand your needs, wishes and expectations. We'll define goals for your treatment and start working toward achieving your goals. During the course of therapy, we'll develop a close and collaborative relationship. You will take an active stance in your own treatment and gain skills that will be able to use and apply immediately. Therapy will become the place that is just about you, in which I will guide you without judgement and with empathy and dedication.

On a personal note

My personal experience enhances the care I provide as a therapist. Growing up as part of an expat family, I have lived in numerous countries. In different life stages, I have experienced plenty of changes. I have moved cities and countries more times than I can count, as a child, teenager, adult and parent. I have years of professional experience in corporate and clinical environments as well as academia.

 

Since I grew up a with people of different cultures and backgrounds, meeting people from different countries is second nature to me. I love meeting people and keep a non-judgemental and open mind about others. I am married and live in Amstelveen with my husband and two young children. 

It is important for me to combine the latest scientific evidence in my clinical practice. I regularly take trainings and courses at professional and academic institutions to maintain the quality high and stay up to date.

I treat speakers of English, Dutch, Hebrew, Spanish
