I have worked in the field of Selective Mutism for the past fifteen years. I am originally from the Netherlands were I got my degree. I came to the United States in 2000 and have worked in various settings with children and adolescents.

I have a private practice where I provide counseling on an individual or family basis. I also go into schools or other home environments for consultation.

My treatment approach when working with children with SM is cognitive-behavioral (CBT).
