Take heart. Breathe deep. There is so much more to come. You have known unimaginable heartbreak,
and you have also known the morning sun. 

~Morgan Harper Nichols

Hi there! My name is Marieke (pronounced Marika, she/her) and I am a Registered Clinical Counsellor offering services in English and Dutch. 

What do you do when things don't go as planned, when you are feeling stuck? You might try to avoid the issue, reach out to a trusted friend, or try to find a silver lining. When I read Morgan Harper Nichols' poetry I am reminded that no matter what we do, it is mostly about finding ways to appreciate the journey of who we are becoming, through the ups and downs. This is how I try to approach my own experiences and how I aim to work with clients: walking alongside you on your journey, with all the challenges and celebrations that it entails. 

Please note I currently only offer virtual sessions or walk-and-talk sessions.
