I am Loes Appeldoorn Lambooij and as a child I loved to read a lot: immerse myself in another world where anything was possible. Still reading is one of my favorite things to do in the world. Every book gave me a new world view. Each character a different way to deal with that world. I learned that everyone is light and dark, has emotions, can grow as a human being and is fantastically beautiful. With these building blocks and from the basic idea that, without judging, all aspects of a person may be there, I started as a therapist.

I live with my husband and our dog Chicca who, as an old grandmother, often snores lightly on the couch. In my front yard you can find different herbs, fruit trees and in the right season tomatoes and beans. Besides gardening I also like to be creative. Of course I still like to read and a lot.
