The way I like to work

As a psychologist, my mission is to empower humans to navigate challenging situations, improve their mental well-being, and achieve personal growth. I strongly believe that every person deserves the opportunity to lead a happy, balanced, and extraordinary life.  I have a passion for helping humans overcome difficulties and create meaningful, fulfilling lives.  I take pride in fostering a safe and supportive environment for my clients.

I work with adults, couples, throuples and polycules in relationship- and individual therapy in Afrikaans and English.  My approach to therapy is integrative, drawing from various evidence-based modalities such as existential therapy, psychodynamic therapy, person centred therapy, dialectical behavioural therapy, and mindfulness to name a few. I tailor my treatment plans to address the unique needs and goals of each client, ensuring that the therapy process is both effective and personalised.

The people I like to work with

I have a passionate interest in working with humans that identify as: 

  • Lesbian
  • Gay
  • Bisexual
  • Pansexual
  • Asexual
  • Transgender
  • Gender non-conforming
  • Non-binary
  • Gender Fluid
  • Queer
  • Intersex
  • Heterosexual
  • Cisgender
  • Or any other identifier

As well as humans that structure their relationships as:

  • Polyamorous
  • Open
  • Swinging
  • Ethically or consensually non-monogamous
  • Relationship anarchists
  • Or a structure I haven’t heard of yet – if you let me know what it is, I’ll educate myself on it – you won’t have to.

And humans that are into:

  • BDSM
  • Kink
  • Vanilla sex 
  • And any other way of expressing yourself sexually 

These lists keep growing daily!

The areas I like to work in

My areas of special interest include:

  • Gender identity and expression
  • Sexual orientation
  • Sexual difficulties
  • Relationship orientation
  • Relationship difficulties
  • Infidelity
  • Anxiety disorders
  • Depression
  • Grief and loss
  • Anger management
  • Life transitions 

Whether you are struggling with a particular concern or simply seeking personal growth, I am here to provide the guidance and support needed.

My belief about humans and therapy

I believe in the power of human connection and empathy, and I am committed to building a strong therapeutic alliance with each client. I understand that seeking therapy can be a courageous step, and I deeply respect the vulnerability and trust that clients bring into the therapeutic relationship. It is my priority to create a safe and nurturing environment where clients can explore their feelings, find clarity, and develop new insights.
