About me

PhD, clinical psychologist and psychotherapist, specialist in clinical psychology. After several years of clinical work, I currently work as an adjunct lecturer and senior researcher at the Centre for Psychiatry Research, Department of Clinical Neuroscience, Karolinska Institutet.

Research description

I do research on training and supervision within the field of evidence-based psychotherapy (KCP-UF) and process research on therapists' verbal behaviors (technical and relational skills), patients' verbal (in-session) behaviors, and outcomes in a number of projects at MIQA. I am also leading the research on the therapeutic component of psychedelic-assisted psychotherapy in an ongoing project on depression (PSIPET) and in a recent project on cancer-related depression (CAPSI). Together with a Danish and a Norwegian researcher, I also lead a joint Nordic project in this research area (NNPS).
