My profession

Designing the future of digital psychotherapy.

I’m the Head of Design at Sympatient. Our mission is to build the future of digital psychotherapy, to which I proudly contribute over a decade of design experience. With my multidisciplinary background, I have the privilege of working closely with colleagues from diverse fields, bridging the gap between design, psychology, and development to deliver seamless and compelling digital therapeutic products. I solve design challenges with consistent attention to unite efficacy and user experience. As part of my role, I’m responsible for our product’s behavioral design, conceptualization, and production management of our illustrations and media content. One of my passions is pushing the possibilities of mobile VR beyond industry standards to deliver the best possible exposure therapy to our patient’s homes. Overall, I’m humbled by the opportunity to be part of such an incredible team and work on projects that truly make a difference in people’s lives.

A short introduction

Definitely something creative director.

So what do you do? I’m a designer. Ooh, like a …? After years of feeling like a generalist, poly-specialist, anti-unicorn. I love the common definition of a creative director. I always had a huge enjoyment in getting deep into multiple specializations. As a director, I draw upon my experience in design , concept development and team coordination to all my projects. Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit.
