I offer a number of services aimed at supporting the international families and communities in The Netherlands. My area of expertise is quality international education at all levels and well-being of children, adolescents and young adults.



As per the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child, every child has the right to quality education for personal development. Unfortunately, some face obstacles such as cognitive deficits, concentration issues, or emotional discomfort. My aim is to assist children and teens in rediscovering their strengths, utilizing them to overcome challenges, and ultimately succeeding in school.

Recognizing each individual's uniqueness, our approach involves an initial meeting, assessments as needed, and a customized plan of action. What sets Baumgarten Child Psychologist and More apart is the flexibility in timing and location of support. I provide assistance not only during office hours but also after school, evenings, and weekends, adapting to the needs of each child.



Parenting practices around the world share three major goals: ensuring children’s health and safety, preparing children for life as productive adults, and transmitting cultural values. A high-quality parent-child relationship is critical for healthy development. Having said that, international or expat parents also face doing this while living away from family. And it’s hard, particularly if things aren’t going as smoothly as expected. If you need a little extra help or have been advised to do this from your child’s school, please contact me to see what I can offer and how I can help.



International schools, like their pupils and their families, face unique challenges here in the Netherlands. I offer a wide range of psychological services which include: specific assessments and/or interventions for individual pupils or small groups of children, extended education for teachers, preventative and informative educational lectures for parents, supervision of academic interns.
