Overview

As a Clinical Psychologist, I work from the belief that within everyone lies immeasurable and accessible gifts of personal power, resilience and the capacity for self-direction and autonomy, and my journey with clients is focused in connecting with those gifts in individual ways, and linking with the associated hope and meaning it brings. In terms of therapeutic frames, my preferences are to use psychodynamic therapeutic approaches, along with CBT, supportive therapy, mindfulness practices and hypnotherapy. I did my pre-graduate training as well as Master’s Degree in Clinical Psychology through the University of Pretoria in South Africa, and over my now 20 years of practice in the field, I've worked in various settings, including higher education, a psychiatric hospital environment, the public hospital sector, and most recently over the last 5 years, in private practice. I see clients from ages 16 and older, and this may include couples.
