The decision to begin psychotherapy can be a daunting and often confusing. Perhaps you are struggling with challenges you were able to handle in the past. Perhaps you are overwhelmed by difficult circumstances that are beyond your control.

You may even want to understand yourself and your relationships better. Whatever the reason, psychotherapy can be a useful space to tackle many of life’s challenges as you embark on a journey towards yourself.




Choosing a psychologist is a highly personal decision. It can also be anxiety-provoking to begin a therapeutic process. While my website cannot answer all of your questions, I hope it gives you a sense of the work I do. 

I am a registered Clinical Psychologist working in Cape Town. I also offer virtual sessions for patients who are in other provinces. I have a special interest in working within the scope of adult mental health, focusing primarily on individual psychotherapy. 

My areas of interest and experience include working with:

Bullet   Anxiety, Depression, and other mood disorders
Bullet   Sexuality and Gender Identity
Bullet   Personality Pathology
Bullet   Identity and Self-esteem challenges
Bullet   Coping with major life stressors and changes
Bullet   Personal growth and self-awareness




My goal as a clinical psychologist is to provide patients with a professional, holding, and non-judgemental therapeutic space where we can explore their current difficulties as well as identify patterns of relating, thinking, and behaving that have contributed to a lack of satisfaction in their lives. In essence, I work in collaboration with you to understand these unhelpful patterns in order to make sense of where they might have come from, their purpose in your lives and how they can be reworked. 


I work from a psychodynamic perspective to provide brief (supportive) and long-term psychotherapy to individual patients. My aim is to embark with you on an internal journey that may help you attain a life worth living that enhances your self-understanding, while exploring the ways in which patterns and the past may affect the present.
