Being an expat myself gives me an advantage to understanding other expat students and their unique needs. My main goal is to aid individuals in overcoming their obstacles and challenges alongside changing negative thinking to increase self awareness and produce life transformations.
Working with clients brings a great importance on providing a safe therapeutic environment. I find that the greatest success comes from using positive approaches and methods in therapy. I am here to provide guidance for you!
My heart and passion have resided with psychology ever since I can remember. My passion for helping others, stems from being part of a large family and understanding the importance of support and community. I was born in The United States, where I studied my Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology, with an emphasis in Positive Psychology. Alongside my studies, I played volleyball at the highest level.
As a student-athlete, I embraced being a team player and the lessons learned from managing your time efficiently between school and sports. After graduating, I explored an area of psychology working with children with autism. This was my first Master’s degree (MSc). My interest did not stop there, with the urge to pursue my passion of helping others.
I moved to The Netherlands to complete my second Master’s Degree, in counseling psychology (MA). I also am registered as a Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA) and NIP – The Dutch Association of Psychologists. I believe that each client needs an individualized treatment according to their own story. My goal is to blend all of my knowledge together to best help the client reach their full potential.
