About me

I’m incredibly privileged to absolutely love my work. This passion has been with me since my first day at Wits University, studying a BA Undergraduate Degree in Psychology and South African Sign Language. Inspired by my lectures, I soon developed a keen interest in Neuropsychology, so I volunteered at Headway Gauteng, assisting in the cognitive and emotional rehabilitation of adults with acquired brain injuries. This led me to complete my MA Neuropsychology at UCT (2014), followed by an internship at Groote Schuur Hospital and Red Cross Children’s Hospital (2015), where I gained experience working in the Neurology, Neurosurgery, and the Psychiatric wards. While working at the GSH Memory Clinic, I developed a special interest in dementia and degenerative disorders, as well as in paediatric traumatic brain injury, as I conducted a cognitive rehabilitation study for my thesis. In 2016, I lectured Neuropsychology at Midrand Graduate Institute, assisted in managing a research study on impulsivity and compulsivity in methamphetamine use disorder, and volunteered as co-facilitator of the monthly support group for the Huntington’s Association of South Africa. 

Wanting to engage more therapeutically with clients beyond assessment, I studied my MA Community Counselling and Clinical Psychology at Stellenbosch University (2017), then completed my internship at 2 Military Hospital (2018) and community service at Khayelitsha District Hospital and Community Clinics (2019), where I worked in the paediatric, psychiatric, medical, trauma, and maternity wards. In 2020, I entered private practice at Vincent Pallotti Hospital and Chris Barnard Hospital, integrating my neuropsychological and therapeutic skills, by offering assessments and therapy to in- and outpatients.


After my maternity leave in mid-2021, I left the hospital setting and opened my private practice in Claremont. Here I focus on psychotherapy for adults, assisting with a range of issues such as depression, anxiety, trauma, grief, relationship difficulties, and life transitions. I place the therapeutic relationship at the heart of healing, and use Psychodynamic theories to help me understand my clients, their struggles, and how to best assist with a corrective emotional experience. Where helpful, I integrate Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and Mindfulness techniques, as well as my special interest in the brain-based therapies of EMDR and BWRT, which can provide instant relief for acute and long-standing challenges. As a fully accredited member of SACNA, I also offer neuropsychological assessments from age 6 and up for diagnosis of neuropsychological conditions, income protection and disability claims, treatment planning, and medicolegal cases.


Every person who walks through my doors, I see as an individual who needs unique support to get through their challenges. So let’s work together to discover what it is that you need that helps you step out into the world with confidence.
