I currently reside in Copenhagen where I have my own my private practice. In the same office I also manage https://adhdklinik.com where I specialize in the assessment, diagnosis, and treatment of adolescents and adults. I have formerly worked at Norway's leading rehabilitation clinic for addiction disorders, a psychiatric ward for comorbidity of substance abuse and mental disorders, Denmarks biggest private hospital and a private expat clinic.
I am trained in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Cognitive Processing Therapy for PTSD, and Motivational Interviewing. My experience spans various therapeutic approaches for both group and individual therapy. I have been supervised in Schema Therapy and Narrative Therapy, and draw influence from Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, but most of all from traditional psychodynamic approaches. I also provide psychoeducation for ADHD / ADD , autism, and sleep disorders. Furthermore, I am trained in autogenic training / NSDR, enabling me to teach progressive muscle relaxation techniques and mindfulness. As a versatile therapist, this skillset allows me to design tailored treatments in collaboration with my clients.
My approach to therapy is rooted in a client-centred perspective, prioritizing the unique needs of each individual, and adhering to the sacred confidentiality in the working alliance. I have assessed and treated patients experiencing a wide range of mental health issues, including stress and burnout, sleep disorder, ADHD/ADD, autism, anxiety, depression, OCD, PTSD, psychotic disorders, personality disorders, affective disorders, and addiction disorders. For high-functioning clients who do not meet specific diagnostic criteria, I offer talk therapy on any topic of their choosing, often including self-actualization and self-realization.
In addition to therapy, I am adept at assessing and diagnosing neurodevelopmental disorders such as ADHD, ADD, and Autism spectrum disorders, holding a certification in Autism Diagnostic Observation Schedule (ADOS-2). I also have experience in assessing intelligence for adolescents and adults using WAIS and WISC.
I am an authorized psychologist which is a protected title granted by the Danish Supervisory Board of Psychological Practice, and a member of Dansk Psykologforening.
