16+ years of counselling and clinical experience
It is my privilege, as a clinical psychologist, to be able to work with people at the most profound cognitive and emotional levels. This is a privilege that I do not take lightly. It is my passion and duty to provide psychological support to those in distress, and always to put the health of people first. I enjoy working as part of a multidisciplinary team, listening to others’ perspectives, and I am always motivated to learn.
In 1998, I graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in Humanities at Rhodes University in Makhanda (formerly Grahamstown). I was fortunate to have obtained psychological training in a lay setting for eight years prior to my formal studies. After working in the corporate world (sales and marketing) for a decade, I went on to complete a Bachelor of Arts Honours degree in Psychology at the University of South Africa in 2011. I completed a Master of Arts in Clinical Psychology at the University of Johannesburg in 2013. Since then, I have worked in a formal capacity as a clinical psychologist in four psychiatric hospitals, and one district hospital.
I am currently in private practice as the Director of Cape Town Psychologists in Sea Point, where my main modality of treatment is Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT) and Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT). I ardently believe in evidence-based treatments, and CBT has been shown in the psychological literature to be effective for many psychiatric and psychological conditions with, or without, medication. I look forward to providing you, as a client, with a professional service and with superlative care. I also facilitate Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT) groups every Monday evening from 6 pm to 8 pm at our practice.
