Integrative psychology

S. 's clinical interests focus on therapeutic applications of novel psychoactive substances, namely psilocybin. S. understands this medicine as acting on multiple levels of being, thereby possessing the potential for deep healing of root causes of distress and illness. Rather than suppressing symptoms, he seeks to facilitate people's own healing work by utilizing this medicine in the context of psychotherapy and integrating such 'medication-assisted therapies' into a broader approach to wellness and mental health. This may include elements such as diet, exercise, herbs, supplements, somatic therapies, nature therapy, and psychosocial interventions.

During his psychological training, he pursued clinical opportunities in Belgium and Australia. He has traveled extensively in Central and South America and is conversant in Dutch, English, French and Spanish. Outside his private practice, S. enjoys spending time in nature, dancing salsa, practising calisthenics, and being with friends and family.
