I have been working as a health psychologist at the Netherlands Cancer Institute since 2015. I see patients who are experiencing mental discomfort as a result of their illness or treatment and who have trouble finding a way out of them. I consider proper psychosocial care essential to internal oncological treatment. I apply my specialist knowledge of mental problems in cancer to psychological diagnostics and treatment.
New collaborations with other disciplines are important to me. I am part of the oncological rehabilitation team. Together with my colleagues, I hope to be able to help patients reestablish their mental balance and fortify their resilience.
