I am a UCT-trained Clinical Psychologist, and currently work in private practice in Claremont and Plattekloof. I have experience offering psychological services in hospital and educational settings within the private and public sector in South Africa.
I am an Associate Member of the South African Clinical Neuropsychological Association (SACNA), member of the Western Cape Association for Infant Mental Health (WCAIMH), and am a registered Babies in Mind Practitioner.
I offer psychotherapy to children, adolescents, adults, couples and families. I value a non-judgmental, empathic and confidential therapeutic environment that facilitates my client's sense of emotional safety and a collaborative therapeutic relationship.
I work from a psychodynamic perspective and integrate other treatment modalities, such as Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavioural Therapy (DBT), and Mindfulness Based Therapy in order to provide a meaningful therapeutic experience. I also provide psychological assessments, including educational, emotional, career, and personality assessments to children, adolescents, and adults.
As a therapist and human being with my own interactional style, I am mindful of the mutual creation of therapeutic interactions. I therefore enjoy working collaboratively with my clients to understand the meaning of our therapeutic interactions so that we can better understand their concerns and interactions with others.
