I am a registered Clinical Psychologist. I developed an interest in human behaviour at an early age and continue to feel passionate about working with, and better understanding, individuals’ cognitions, emotions and behaviours. I work with a variety of clients including adults, adolescents, couples and families.

I completed my studies in my home town of Port Elizabeth where I obtained a Masters in Psychology degree (Cum Laude), as well as a Masters in Clinical Psychology degree, at the Nelson Mandela Metropolitan University (NMMU). My Masters Dissertation focused on the possible long-term effects that bullying at school may have on individuals’ self-esteem and attachment styles during young adulthood. My completed Masters Dissertation, for which I was awarded the 2010 Ford Premier Award for Best Masters Degree by Dissertation, was published by Lambert Academic Publishing in September 2010. In addition, I compiled a journal article on the impact that bullying at school has on an individual’s self-esteem during young adulthood, which was published by the International Journal of Education and Research (IJER) in August 2013.
I completed my internship at the University Psychology Clinic (UCLIN), where I provided psychotherapy and psychometric assessment services to a diverse range of clients. I gained further experience at the Life Hunters Craig Hospital, where I facilitated the Substance Abuse Program. Upon completion of my internship, I underwent my Community Service at a number of placements in Uitenhage. I provided psychotherapy and psychometric assessments at the Orsmond TB Hospital, Rosedale Community Health Centre and Park Centre Community Health Centre.

I draw eclectically from a range of therapeutic modalities, in order to best suit the unique needs of each individual. Through psychotherapy, I aim to facilitate self-awareness and personal growth, in order to assist individuals to manage challenges in their personal, family, academic and/or work environments more effectively.

My private practice is situated in Framesby, Port Elizabeth.  I am registered with the Health Professions Council of South Africa (HPCSA), as well as the Board of Healthcare Funders (BHF), and am a member of the Psychological Society of South Africa (PsySSA).
