I completed my training in South Africa, and while I was trained in various treatment modalities, my understanding of human behaviour is strongly influenced by psychodynamic theory. I am fluent in English and Afrikaans (South African Language).

I am skilled at working from a multicultural stance and can access clients in a way that they feel heard, even if that means that they have to discuss their cultural preferences for the sake of understanding.

I have 8.5 years of private practice experience, and collectively 6 years of inpatient adult mental health experience. For short term therapies, I draw on treatment tools from CBT, DBT, Narrative therapy techniques, Gestalt Therapy techniques, mindfulness, and Body Talk skills.
