I hold a BA Psych, B Ed Honours, Honours in Psychology, and Masters in Counselling Psychology from The University of the Witwatersrand.
I have managed the Dual Diagnosis Unit at Akeso Parktown for several years. In addition, I manage the COPE therapy team which comprises of several psychologists and occupational therapists.
Having practiced for the last nine years, I have come to value the significance of the multidisciplinary team approach, and I derive great fulfilment working in conjunction with a team of committed and dedicated people.
My areas of interest include substance abuse, individual, couples and family therapy, and mother-child work in the postpartum period. I emphasise the value of long-term insight-orientated therapy. Furthermore, I believe in using the Dialectical Behavioural Therapy (DBT) model with my clients to empower and equip individuals in managing overwhelming feelings in productive ways. I put effort into creating a non-judgmental thinking space that allows clients to find themselves.
I am constantly amazed by peoples’ resilience and capacity to overcome tremendous hardship. I feel privileged when clients confide and share that which is deeply painful. I feel honoured to embark on this journey with my clients.
