Expert Clinical Psychologist in The Hague and Leiden. It`s my goal to create a comfortable, safe environment where we`ll work together to achieve your goals. I help people who are experiencing distress or stress either in their personal lives, in their relationships, in their families or in their career. As well I provide effective treatments for a range of problems, issues and difficulties.
I am a therapist because I want you to have a safe place to be yourself without any judgment, to be heard and be believed. I treat everyone with dignity, respect, and curiosity. I want to collaborate with you to experience, discuss and view whatever you come to me with as a story line that can be re-written.
I believe that no one is broken. The only thing that is wrong is what we’ve been taught to think and believe about ourselves that stops us from being our true selves. Therefore, my goal is to empower people.
With couples I help them improve communication skills, reduce conflict, and increase intimacy. With individuals I help them reduce anxiety and depression, improve coping skills, and transform their life story to embrace more acceptance and love.
Therapy is a powerful tool that promotes positive change, healing, and personal growth. We all have the capacity to become better people, however the limits we place on ourselves may severely restrict our personal happiness.
Therapy can help you to refocus, visualize the life you want to live, set meaningful treatment goals, and develop the skills needed to reach them. Therapy is the one place where a person can be listened to and understood without bias, and with deep understanding. This experience of being understood and valued by being listened to without bias is in itself therapeutic. In therapy, a process begins to occur over time that becomes internalized in a person’s mind.
Therapy can help people to break free from maladaptive patterns, get a better understanding of self, resolve painful memories, become unstuck, and improve their relationships. Not only does therapy help people to heal, it also promotes increased self-awareness, insight, and confidence.
Therapy and counseling are types of treatment to improve your mental well-being. Therapy can teach you new ways to think about the situations that bother you and help you cope with your feelings. It can help with feelings of anger, fear, anxiety, shyness and panic. It can also give you tools to help fight low self-esteem and depression, for example. In my practice I use different approaches or therapies.
