About Me

Who am I?

Moving to Malaysia has been a dream of mine to help aid the community with mental health. As a half Norwegian, half Malaysian, I have lived in Sweden, Saudi Arabia, Singapore and the United States. I was immediately attracted to the Mont Kiara area to practice due to its melting pot of diversity. 

 I am coming from living in the United States for the past 15 years. I am a mom of two and enjoy photography, reading and spending time traveling with my family.

How do I Practice?


I use a client-centered approach integrating the principles of cognitive behavioral therapy, dialectical behavioral therapy and relational therapy to emphasize a client’s innate strengths. I value building a collaborative relationship with my clients to approach treatment together and build a supportive non-judgmental environment.

I strongly believe in maintaining the confidentiality and privacy of my clients.

Education & Certifications

Doctorate in Clinical Psychology, William James College

Masters in Psychology, Boston University

Masters in Psychology, William James College

Bachelors in Psychology, Boston University

Prior to coming to Malaysia, I have spent the past five years as a site director and psychologist at a nationwide group practice where I supervised therapists, and psychiatrists in addition to conducting therapy. 

I am licensed under the standards of the United States as a Clinical Psychologist, with 10 years of education experience. I offer individual therapy, couples and marital therapy and consultation for individuals over the age of 16 and businesses in need of behavioral health advice.

I received my doctoral training in Clinical Psychology from William James College in Boston, Massachusetts and completed my pre- and post-doctoral fellowship at The Edward M. Kennedy Health Center in Worcester, where I worked with trauma survivors and refugees. I have also trained at the Lemuel Shattuck and Newton-Wellesley Hospitals, and the Franklin Elementary School in Newton, Massachusetts. Lastly, my dissertation focused on protective factors against burnout.
