Marloes Verhoeven, Psy.D. has extensive experience treating adolescents and adults with a wide range of conditions, including mood disturbances (depression, bipolar disorder), anxiety, post-traumatic, acute, or chronic/toxic stress, grief and loss, dissociation, and personality disorders.
Marloes uses a strong trauma informed approach, in which the therapeutic relationship is central. In therapy, Marloes offers a safe space in which her clients can experience trust, acceptance, and genuine positive regard.
She helps her clients increase their ability to manage and regulate often intense emotions, especially in the face or aftermath of complex (interpersonal) trauma or abuse. As a result, clients feel less overwhelmed and better able to cope with past, current, or chronic stressors.
When applicable, Marloes provides EMDR therapy (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing – a proven method to treat trauma) to help clients heal from (childhood) abuse, neglect, or insecure attachments. For more information, please see our section and video-explanation about EMDR.
Marloes co-authored this article about EMDR, provides CEU training to professionals in the community about trauma informed treatment, gives seminars about the science of ACEs and how to implement this science into practice, and also provides trauma training to schools.
