I finished both my master’s degree in clinical psychology and in clinical and psychosocial epidemiology in 2012 at the University of Groningen. After that, I worked as a counsellor and therapist in both Rotterdam and Amsterdam, culminating in my registration as a healthcare psychologist in 2018 and a PhD in clinical psychology in 2019
My current research focuses on psychological risk factors for the development and course of affective disorders. Next to that I am coordinating the Caring Universities project, in which 4 Dutch universities (Leiden, VU, Utrecht and Maastricht) set out to explore and improve student mental wellbeing by means of e-mental health solutions.
I am involved as instructor for the course ‘Scientific Education and Innovation’ of the post-academic training in Clinical Psychology.
As a lead therapist I guide patients with treatment resistant depression during psilocybin treatment in the context of a scientific study: ‘The Safety and Efficacy of Psilocybin in Participants With Treatment Resistant Depression (P-TRD)’
