I am a clinical psychologist offering individual and couples therapy in English, Dutch, Ukrainian, and Russian. I am committed to offer a safe space where we can build trust and work through your most painful emotions and challenging situations.  
I work with a wide range of complaints:  
  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Relational difficulties
  • Sleep difficulties
  • Stress and work-related problems
  • Personality disorders
  • Fatigue and psychosomatic complaints
  • Behavioral and emotional problems
  • Feeling of being ‘stuck’ and indecisiveness 
  • Anger outbursts and aggression problems
  • Inability to feel pleasure or make long-term plans
  • Chronic feeling of being overwhelmed 
  • Repeating patterns in relationships and difficulties in maintaining or starting relationships: repeatedly being betrayed, left, cheated on or inability to commit to long-term relationships
  • Attachment problems (feeling unable to connect or, in opposite, experiencing fear of abandonment)
  • Feeling of hopelessness and powerlessness
  • Traumatic experiences and grief
Moreover, with personal experience of emigration, I also consult patients on emigration-related challenges: 
  • Feeling ‘misplaced’: who am I here and what can I expect from my new life? 
  • Grieving what was left behind in the home country 
  • Cultural identity: feeling torn between what was “normal” back there and what is perceived as ‘normal’ in the new country 
  • Searching for new identity after emigration 
  • Adjusting to new reality to be able not to just survive, but also thrive 
  • Intercultural relationships: finding understanding despite different languages and cultures
Consultation lasts 60 minutes.  
Fee: 50 EUR per session. 
I offer both short-term and long-term therapy options.  

In case of cancellation less than 24 hours before the session or missing the appointment, the client pays the full fee. Notify me at least 24 hours in advance by email or phone to avoid the cancellation fee. 


I obtained my Master of Sciences (MSc) in Clinical Psychology with cum laude from KU Leuven. I did my internship in clinical psychology at University Psychiatric Centrum in Kortenberg in 2021-2022. There I gained experience in therapy and diagnostics of mood disorders, in particular depression and bipolar disorder, psychotic disorders, personality disorders, diagnostics of autism spectrum disorder and neuropsychological assessment before and after electroconvulsive therapy. In my therapy sessions I use evidence-based interventions. I mostly rely on the psychodynamic therapy framework, but, depending on the client’s needs, use elements of other therapeutic approaches. 
Prior to my education in Clinical Psychology, I obtained Master of Arts (MA) and Master of Philosophy (MPhil) in Philosophy from KU Leuven, where I focused on phenomenology and philosophy of psychiatry. In addition to that, I have four years of experience in global executive search.
