Frequently Asked Questions
My orientation and training are predominantly Psychodynamic, although I employ some aspects of MBT (Mentalization-Based Therapy), ISTDP (Intensive Short-Term Psychodynamic Psychotherapy), and others (DBT – Dialectical Behavior Therapy, Intensive Trauma Therapy, and Mindfulness-Based Therapy) to address better the complexity of what you’re coming with.
How I think and understand life is influenced by the works of the great therapists I studied, but it’s not a finished process. The world of art, philosophy, and nature feels necessary to me to try and access the depth and uniqueness of human nature.

To ensure complete confidentiality of my clients and the therapy setting, I have opted to not work with insurance companies.
Feel free to consult with your insurance company regarding the possibility of reimbursement – you can check the tab about my professional associations.
Also, some international insurance companies (i.e., Cigna) reimburse psychotherapy sessions held with me – depending on your specific plan. You are, however, responsible for paying the bill yourself. Afterward, you can apply for reimbursement with your insurer.
I usually work with patients/clients once a week. However, we might discuss this further during our first session.
Therapy is a process that is influenced by a lot of factors.
When I suggest the specific number of sessions or offer a long term therapy, I do this with the rule in mind that says:
“Therapy should be as long as necessary and as short as possible.”
If you wish to reschedule or cancel the meeting, you should do so max 48h before the scheduled time. Otherwise, the fee is non-refundable.
– You can either write me an email or give me a call to set up the first meeting: +31 6 393 494 01 or +48 698 685 615
– You can also check the availability of the sessions and book an appointment over here on my calendar.
To safely hold a meeting online, I use a service called ZOOM. It is an online platform that’s has been endorsed by various professional bodies. This choice is both ethical and safe, protecting both the client and the therapist.
You need to have a free account set up before our first session. It’s very intuitive and requires minimal technical knowledge.
