My story

I obtained a Masters degree in Clinical Psychology and Community Counseling from Stellenbosch University followed by a clinical internship at Lentegeur Psychiatric hospital. I completed my community service year with the Department of Correctional Services, where I provided psychological services to adults with a wide range of difficulties. During my clinical training, I provided in- and out-patient psychological services to children, adults, couples and groups. I also provided neuropsychological and psychometric assessments to individuals with neurological insult (including stroke, traumatic brain injury, dementia) and/or intellectual and functional limitations.

I am registered with the Health Professions Council of South Africa, and  a member of the Board of Healthcare Funders (BHF) and the Psychological Society of South Africa (PsySSA). My clinical orientation is informed by Psychodynamic, CBT and supportive psychotherapies.
