My Approach to Helping

I'm a Dutch Certified Clinical and Health Psychologist. I hold a Bachelor’s in Psychology and Social Work and a Master’s degree from Utrecht University in the Netherlands.

I work with mood disorders, personality disorders, anxiety disorders, grief and loss, and maladaptive patterns of behavior. I specialize in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Compassion Focused Therapy (CFT), and Motivational Interviewing. I speak English, Dutch, and Maghrebi-Arabic.

My clinical experience in the Netherlands, Morocco, and UAE has allowed me to be sensitive to the cultural nuances of the clients that I see.

I view the therapeutic relationship as a working collaboration between client and therapist. I hope to guide you to think more critically and reflectively in order better understand yourself, achieve your goals, and develop a general feeling of well-being and empowerment. I approach my work with compassion and always strive to provide a secure environment with mutual trust, respect and commitment.

More Info About My Practice

I hold a free virtual group once a month titled "Tuesday Topics." At this group we'll gather to discuss a topic related to our mental wellbeing. This is an inclusive group, I welcome people from different backgrounds to come to together to connect, relate, and grow in a safe environment. If you're interested please give the center a call, and I'll see you there!
