My name is Arletta and I have been living in New Zealand since 2011. Originally from the Netherlands, I had a career for 15 years as a social worker in residential settings, foster care, crisis intervention programs for families and Video Home Training.

I became an Integrative Child Therapist in 2003 and had a busy private practice in the Netherlands for eight years, working with children from 3 up to 20 years and their parents and caregivers. During this time I was also a part time trainer/coach for students becoming child counsellers and also worked for primary schools as a counsellor. I was part of a professional network of specialists working with children who had attachment.

I am specialized in Autism, and supporting families, youth and schools around autism related topics and anxiety.
