- Face to Face
Many years of social work in health care prepared me for private practice. My passion lies with grieving people and with those who struggle with the complications and implications of a life-limiting or life-threatening illness.
My studies started at the Rand Afrikaans University, which you will now know as the University of Johannesburg, where I was taught by some of the best social work lecturers and where I obtained the BA (SW). Many years later, I completed the Masters in Medical Social Work (MA-MSW) at the University of Pretoria. The North-West University in Potchefstroom guided me through a PhD (SW) where my research focussed on the intervention of a complicated grief intervention program.
I work from a strength-based perspective and focus on the dual responsibility of both the client and myself as the therapist. Together we strive towards finding solutions.
I know that it is only people who experience hardship who will turn to therapy, and if you are one of those, I welcome you to my practice. And until we meet, please take care.
