I completed my B.Com in Industrial Psychology and Labour Relations in 2011 at the North West University (NWU). Following this I completed my Honours in Psychology at NWU with research focused on intervention with elderly female headed households raising young children. I then started my Master’s Degree in Clinical Psychology at the University of the Witwatersrand in 2013 with a dissertation focused on the possibilities and challenges of psychodynamic therapy in the community context. In 2014 I completed my internship at Charlotte Maxeke Academic Hospital Johannesburg having rotated through the adult psychiatric ward and child and family unit. I then completed my one year community service in several Ekurhuleni primary healthcare clinics (Phenduka, Dresser, Brackenhurst and Alberton North). I went on to work in forensic psychology for several months in Pretoria before returning to clinical work and therapy as a member of the Akeso Parktown COPE Team.
I work with individuals, couples, families and groups from a person centred and insight based approach. I am also trained in Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT).
I believe that therapy is a space in which an individual makes the radical choice to take ownership of one’s life and introspect in a meaningful and safe environment.
I have a special interest in mood disorders, trauma and personality disorders.
