Plattekloof Claremont

I am a Clinical Psychologist based in Claremont and Plattekloof, Cape Town.

Therapeutic Style

I offer psychodynamic psychotherapy, with a particular interest in intersubjective systems therapy which facilitates my understanding of the therapeutic relationship. I also draw on other modalities (such as CBT, DBT) to manage a client's particular therapeutic needs.

Special Interests

  • Infants: Parent-Infant Psychotherapy & Parenting Support
  • Children & Adolescents: Individual Psychotherapy and Psychometric Assessments
  • Families: Couples & Family Therapy
  • Adults: Medium and Long Term Individual Psychotherapy

Professional Experience

In conjunction with private practice, I am currently working as a Clinical Psychologist at Cedar House Independent School where I provide Individual Psychotherapy and Family Interventions to learners to manage their mental health and learning difficulties.
