Accepting New Patients


Sometimes we feel lost, but we are in control. Be in charge of your own life, not out of fear, but out of love.  Your path is unique. Dare to live! I started my career in Cultural Social Work in the Netherlands, providing debt assistance and psychosocial counseling. After that I assessed children with Psychiatric Disorders and Somatic disabilities and I worked in Foster Care and Child Protection Services. I completed my Basic Assessment and Diagnostics Skills (NOTE: I am not Licensed to provide Diagnoses) and I became a lecturer at the University of Amsterdam in Educational Sciences, specialty Forensic Child and Youth care and the NHL Universities for the Bachelor Social Work. During this period I started my own practice Loving Caring - Advice and Research in the Netherlands and started in 2017 my ongoing PhD program about parents' (traumatic) intrusive life events and child safety. Since December 2018 I opened the doors in Canada and provide Mental Care for adults, children, and teens.
