Since the beginning of 2019 I am working as a psychologist at Practice Hoek Melkweg. Besides Psychology, I also studied Social Work and Sociology. I have a teacher’s degree. In addition to my job as a psychologist, I work since 2007 as a teacher Social Work at the Academy of Social Studies of the Hanze University Groningen.
In the past I have worked as a psychologist in the forensic sector, as well as some years at Het Poortje with youngsters who suffer from behavioural and mental problems.
As a psychologist, I am interested in how basic human phenomena, such as anxiety or sadness, can impair human functioning or decrease well being. One of the most challenging aspects of my work as a psychologist, is to come to a deeper understanding and awareness, in order to create a new balance.
