My name is Anny, I am a psychologist for children, adolescents and young-adults in Amsterdam.
During my Psychology Bachelors degree studies I volunteered at a boarding school for international youth, and that is where I developed a deep passion for working with children and teenagers: emotionally supporting, motivating, resolving inner conflicts, and helping them achieve their goals and aspirations during the confusing and complicated years of childhood and adolescence.
Since then, I continued to develop my theoretical knowledge and professional skills by studying
for a Masters degree in Clinical Psychology and by working and volunteering in many facilities
and mental health centers for young-adults, children and adolescents, who were dealing with emotional and behavioral difficulties of varying levels of severity, such as personality disorders, anxiety, depression, social problems, to name a few.
Based on my vast experience and theoretical knowledge, I build a strong genuine connection with each patient and create a specialized treatment plan to support, motivate and solve the
difficulties my patients are facing. I help my patients develop healthy emotional, cognitive and behavioral patterns that will stay with them as they grow into adulthood.
I do this by using various psychological methods such as cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), psychodynamic therapy, play therapy, art therapy and more.
In my private clinic in Amsterdam, I provide therapy in English for children, teenagers and young-adults aged 6-28.
