Experience

Most of my experience is in PraxisP, KU Leuven’s outpatient Academic Centre, where I worked for more than 4 years. At PraxisP, I mostly worked with children, adolescents and families. I also have experience working with adults.

I combined working at PraxisP with my Doctoral Degree where I conducted research on children with ADHD and trained Master students in Psychology on Diagnostic Testing. During my Doctoral Training, I worked 6 months at The Okinawa Institute of Science and Technology in Japan.

How I work

It is my aim to let individuals understand their own struggles and equip them with skills that will empower them.

In an initial clinical assessment, I explore the difficulties and aim to understand the individual’s difficulties using a contextual approach. In doing so, I highly value evidence-based working and always tailor my approach based on the individual’s needs. Preferably, I work multidisciplinary taking into account the larger context.
