You dream of becoming the person you're meant to be.
You're okay at work or graduate school, but you don't fit the "ideal personality" our culture worships. You secretly wonder if something's wrong with you.
You're often overwhelmed, thrown off-balance by emotions or physical symptoms.
You've already tried the latest techniques. Self-help books. Regular therapists. You're running out of options, ready to invest in a deeper solution.
It's time for something to change and that change starts within.
As a psychologist with a decade's experience and graduate degree in therapy, I've guided many people exactly like you back to their inner compass.
I'll invite you to show up for yourself. And we'll face the darkness together.
Because you're ready to relate differently to painful emotions. Tap into your inner calm, wisdom and strength. Go to bed each night at peace with yourself.
If this is you, I'm the therapist for you. Come, let's find your path to meaning and joy.

I love sitting with another person, holding the space for them to discover inner strength and healing. Originally from the US, I trained and worked in Argentina and Israel before moving to the Netherlands with my husband and child. Across cultures, the eternal quest for inner healing fascinates me. Each time I sit down with a client, I silently wonder: “Where will we go today?”
Of course, I can only take you as far as I’ve gone myself. I’ve struggled and grown along many points of life’s spectrum of beauty and challenge – and the work never ends! We humans have the incredible ability to continue growing throughout our lives.
My core belief as a therapist, forged by much experience: On the deepest level, you are the one who knows what’s right for you. My role is to help you find and accurately interpret your inner guidance so you can honor it. Click here and to start finding the real you!
Who thrives in this kind of therapy?
My clients tend to be in the first half of life (20s, 30s, early 40s). I focus on functioning adults who want something more from their current experience of life. The basic requirement is an attitude of accepting that you are responsible for your response to life. From there, we can do wonders.
Who is not a good fit for therapy with me?
First, I do not work as the main provider for those needing or receiving outpatient care for psychiatric problems. Second, I support many clients in recovering from trauma, but I am not trained to treat actively life-disrupting PTSD – for this issue, I recommend finding a therapist trained by the official EMDR institute. (In the Netherlands, I sometimes refer here.) If you are facing these issues and still want to work together, we can look into if it would benefit you to supplement your main treatment with sessions with me.
What issues can this help with?
A variety of issues: from mood problems (depression, anxiety) to addictions (to substances, food, behaviors) to life changes (in identity, relationships, health). I also help with general challenges like communication, assertiveness, self-esteem and boundaries. Note that trauma is not my speciality (See above “Who thrives…” for more info). Many of my clients are Dutch. Many others are Expats from all over the world, dealing with significant internal and external changes.
What is a "mini-session" and how to start therapy?
We´ll start with a mini-session (15 minutes over Zoom) to see if I’m the right person to help. This initial consultation is your time to share your story, and to ask me questions. Most importantly, you will get a feel for what it’s like to work with me.
How do you know therapy is working?
A clear sign of healing is a more rapid recovery from unbalances and daily upsets. You’ll be able to find your calm, centered, wise self more often and more quickly. As with any life transformation, the process is not linear, but this is a trustworthy way to track your growth.
What kind of financial and time investment?
We invest ourselves psychologically in the areas where we commit energy and finances. Weekly or twice-weekly sessions provide the most benefit because they build a strong momentum for healing. (I typically don’t offer sessions at lower frequencies.) Contact me for my current rates.
