I am a Clinical Psychologist registered with the Health Professions Council of South Africa (HPCSA) and with the Board of Health Care Funders (BHF). I completed my BA (Hons) Psychology and Master of Arts in Clinical Psychology degree at the University Witwatersrand.

During my internship I worked at Charlotte Maxeke Academic Hospital, in the Acute Psychiatric Unit and at Chris Hani Baragwanath Academic Hospital in the Child, Adolescent and Family Psychiatry Unit. I went on to complete my community service as a clinical psychologist at Sizwe Tropical Disease hospital, a specialist hospital treating drug resistant tuberculosis and HIV/AIDS related illnesses.

I am currently working at the University of the Witwatersrand, School of Human and Community Development, as an Associate Lecturer in the Psychology Department. I lecture primarily in the field of clinical intervention and community clinical practice. My particular interest is in the Intersection of gender, race and class in shaping aspects of identity.

My interventions are client centred in that they are geared towards meeting the needs and expectations of the client. My aim is to exercise flexibility in the various psychotherapeutic approaches. This allows me to assist the clients in the most appropriate way.
