Having lived abroad for my entire adult life, I know first-hand what kind of struggles expats go through. This includes loneliness, culture shocks, and searches for identity. I have experience in working with clients struggling with a variety of issues, including anxiety, depression, burnout, adjustment to a new culture, managing (adult) ADHD, grief, and adjusting to the (cognitive) impairments following accidents and brain damage. I care about long-term improvements in wellbeing and mindfully tending to your own needs, both physically and mentally. My Approach Life can sometimes feel like an uphill battle, forcing you to make decisions that are difficult to make. In my work as a psychologist, I strongly empathize with that. It's important to me to create a space during the session where you feel safe to express your thoughts and feelings. My approach is based on working together with you, using the resources already available to you and providing you with more tools to build a sort of 'toolbox' that you can practice and use outside of our sessions. As a neuropsychologist, I study how the brain works in interaction with our thoughts, feelings, behavior, and environment. Understanding how this works is often the first crucial step in learning how to deal with struggles arising from this interaction. In promoting wellbeing, I use elements of Acceptance & Commitment therapy (ACT), Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT), mindfulness and schema therapy. This depends highly on what works for you as everyone is different.
