Good day / Goeie dag! I am an English and Afrikaans speaking psychologist practicing in Parktown North, Illovo, and Alberton.
I provide therapy for people from all backgrounds who experience a variety of life transitions and mental health challenges, but also have considerable experience with LGBT groups. I believe that homophobia and transphobia cause pain, and not your identity. You can learn to celebrate your identity, and unlearn shame.
Working together, you and I can gain insight into how this understanding might help you to fully accept your identity and to live a life worth living. You and I will strive to build a relationship based on trust, empathy, collaboration, and safety, and to bring thoughts and feelings into your awareness that may cause conflict and distress.
Skills related to DBT, particularly mindfulness, also guide my work. I am a reliable, professional, kind, and committed therapist, and I look forward to working with you.
