General illness and medical policy
Sessions are primarily taking place online at this time. Clients are asked to cancel in-person sessions as soon as possible if they experience any symptoms of transmittable illness, such as coughing, sneezing, fever, etc. I will also cancel sessions if I exhibit symptoms. Please feel free to reach out if you have any questions or would like updates.
Holidays and Leave
I will be away from the office for the following planned holidays/leave time:
Maternity Leave beginning 30 January 2023 and lasting until at minimum 09 May 2023. This may change according to medical necessity and the site will be updated accordingly. Until I return from maternity leave, no additional new client intakes will be scheduled. But I hope to see you in May!

“Happiness, not in another place but this place, not for another hour but this hour”
All information shared within a session is confidential, as are client files. Reasons for breaking confidentiality include the potential for harm to self, harm to others, or reports of abuse. Confidentiality is also important to consider when using electronic/web-based modes- it is limited to the security of the app and your personal firewalls and computer security. I adhere to the ACA Ethical guidelines.
Sessions are billed according to type. If you choose to have a session in an office, additional fees may apply and vary based upon office location. Payment may be made electronically. Schedule your free intake session today! Contact me for additional information regarding fees and payment.
As an International Therapist, I am not contracted to any Dutch insurance that would cover sessions via direct billing. Therefore I am not able to accept Dutch health insurance payments at this time.
Many international and expat insurances may cover a percentage of the cost of counseling sessions. International insurance often operates on a pay and claim basis and is the responsibility of the client, not the therapist to seek reimbursement. Please check your policy before beginning counseling services.
If you would like to find out more, please fill out the below contact form, or click on "Book Online" at the top of the page to schedule directly. Your booking will be sent to me and I will contact you by email to confirm if the time chosen is available, and to provide you with basic intake paperwork.
