Clinical Psychologist (specializing in Children and Adolescents)

I am a Clinical Psychologist and have recently relocated from Durban to Cape Town. I have rooms in Sea Point, and specialize in working with children and adolescents experiencing problems of everyday living and help facilitate positive growth through a variety of solution-focused therapeutic techniques. The services I provide include both short- and long-term therapy. I work individually with the child/adolescent, as well as integrative work with parents, run groups, and family therapy sessions, if required. I have worked in the public and private sector which has given me a great deal of experience with a variety of difficulties.

I focus on working with:

  • Children and adolescents aged 5 – 18
  • Emotional Assessments
  • Depression and other mood disorders
  • Attention-deficits
  • Trauma
  • Behavioral problems
  • Adjustment difficulties (due to divorce, relocation, loss, etc.)
  • Anxiety and related disorders (Obssesive-Compulsive Disorders, Trichollomania, Social Anxiety, etc.)
  • Phobias
  • Stress-related difficulties
  • Relationship difficulties
  • Bereavement
  • Bullying
  • Peer-related issues
  • School Refusal

I believe that each person is an individual and should be treated as such, everyone is suited for specific things and that includes therapy. I believe in assessing each client specifically and working towards their needs. My therapeutic style is holistic and integrative and I use a variety of techniques proven to help facilitate positive change and growth in my clients’ lives.
