Functie Psychologist
Ms Valentina Stoica is a psychologist at PsyQ International The Hague.
Ms Valentina Stoica started her journey as a psychologist in Romania, following an Experiential Psychotherapy master’s programme for children, adults and couples. Her curiosity regarding therapy’s mechanisms led her to move to The Netherlands where she followed a research masters in Clinical and Developmental Psychopathology at VU Amsterdam. These studies enabled her to gain a deeper insight into the prevention and treatment of mental disorders. For her internship she worked at the University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia, US, investigating the effects of cognitive behavior therapy on depression. Her expertise includes working through creative expressive means with children, adolescents and adults on a variety of mental disorders ranging from anxiety and depression to trauma.  Living as an expat for several years has deepened her understanding of cultural differences and the challenges that the expat community face in order to thrive in another country. She is passionate about using art as a form of self-expression in her work and daily life.
