I am a registered Counselling Psychologist with the Health Professions Council of South Africa (HPCSA), as well as the Board of Healthcare Funders (BHF).

During my years of study, I developed a passion for psychology which led to my working and volunteering at many organisations. I have worked with the elderly, those suffering from severe mental illness, young adults, adolescents, abused children, recovering addicts and members of the Queer community- among others.

I strive to carry out my duties in an ethical and compassionate manner and want my clients to feel that they are in a safe and non-judgemental space; no topic is considered taboo in therapy.

I am a wife and mother and have been on my own therapy journey. This has helped me understand how daunting it can be to confide in someone new. It has also helped me to see therapy from a client's perspective, and to become a better psychologist.
