As a Psychologist I prescribe to an integrative therapeutic approach, meaning I tailor my therapeutic approach around the specific needs of each individual client. I am a bilingual and fluent in both English and Afrikaans. I completed a BA and Honours degree from the University of Pretoria as well as a Post Graduate Certificate in Education (PGCE). I worked as a teacher at two prestigious High Schools in Pretoria as part of my PGCE course practical training. I completed my Master’s Degree in Clinical Psychology through the University of Johannesburg in 2015.

As an intern I worked at Johannesburg Metro Community Clinics and Helen Joseph Hospital. During my community service year I worked for the West Rand Community Clinics District. In both my Internship and Community Service years I gained practical experience working in in-patient and out-patient settings. I also worked closely with multi-disciplinary teams of Doctors, Psychiatrists, Occupational Therapists, Social Workers and Psychiatric Nursing staff to provide the best care for both in-patient psychiatric patients and to provide follow up care for out-patients. In all of these settings I worked with adults, adolescents and children. I provided individual therapy, group therapy, play therapy and psychological assessment. I have worked in Private Practice since completing my Community Service.
