I am a Clinical Psychologist Specializing in Child, Adolescent and Family Therapy. Therapy is aimed at assisting children and adolescents experiencing problems of everyday living and to help facilitate positive growth through a variety of solution-focused therapeutic techniques. The services I provide include both short- and long-term therapy. I work individually with the child/adolescent; as well as, integrative work with parents, run groups, and family therapy sessions, if required. I have worked in the public and private sector (internationally and within South Africa) which has given me a great deal of experience with a variety of difficulties.

I believe that each person is an individual and should be treated as such, everyone is suited for specific things and that includes therapy. I believe in assessing each client specifically and working towards their needs. My therapeutic style is holistic and integrative and I use a variety of techniques proven to help facilitate positive change and growth in my clients’ lives.
