I am here for you.
I'm Monica Ålgars, a clinical psychologist, CBT psychotherapist, and researcher with a PhD in psychology. I'm specialized in eating disorders, body dissatisfaction, self-image, and self-esteem. I'm passionate about working towards reducing the gap between the scientific and clinical realities. In my clinical work I strive to use evidence-based methods and keep up with new knowledge (even when it challenges my pet theories), and in my research and teaching I mostly work with questions of direct clinical relevance.
I offer consultations as well as psychotherapy for problems related to eating, body dissatisfaction, and self-image. I have previously worked and studied in the United States, and am happy to work with English-speaking clients.
