|Bio:||I have worked in public and private health care settings in South Africa and New Zealand over the past 12 years. I enjoy working with adolescents and adults of all ages, who are seeking to improve their emotional and psychological wellbeing.
I predominantly use a client-centred, systemic approach, which allows for intervention to be tailored to each client's unique needs and situation. Special areas of interest are providing treatment for depression and anxiety, adjustment difficulties and trauma.
I am a registered assessor and treatment provider for ACC Sensitive Claims and also work as a health assessor for the Ministry of Justice. I speak English, Afrikaans, and German.
