Therapeutic Approach

Having been employed within the public and private sector in the United States and South Africa, I have experience in working with individuals from diverse populations and backgrounds, with a wide variety of concerns. My therapeutic style is informed by dynamic psychotherapy and I focus on providing a safe, supportive and non-judgemental space to explore the individual’s unique experiences and needs. I offer short and long term therapy for children, adolescents and adults to facilitate healing, self-awareness, and resilience with regard to the stressors of everyday life challenges as well as acute and chronic mental illness.
