I had been a medical doctor before I became a psychologist. I changed professions because I realized that our thoughts, feelings, and behavioural habits have a powerful effect on our health and happiness but their potential to aid healing is often neglected in medicine. I feel privileged to work with clients who are on the journey of recovery and self-growth during and after adversities. I work with clients who have sleep problems, fatigue, stress, low mood, depression, anxiety, panic, chronic worry, obsessive thinking, medical or non-medical trauma-related difficulties, post-concussion syndrome, medical illnesses, or chronic pain.

In addition, I have a unique knowledge and experience in a broad range sleep disorders and fatigue that combines training with world-renown sleep experts and more than a decade long clinical and research work in sleep clinics as well as in academic and hospital settings.

I use the best available methods to identify what the sleep problem is and I offer first-line evidence-based treatments that are short and very effective. We can focus both on the sleep/fatigue and low mood, worry, anxiety, trauma, pain or coping with medical conditions. Please contact me if you have any questions. I look forward to talking with you.
