About

Based in Johannesburg. I assist and support individual clients with everyday struggles and challenges. I work collaboratively with my clients as I believe that every person has the capability and potential to overcome and resolve past and current issues. My focus with counseling is goal orientated and I encompass a directive approach to help clients reach these goals. I am also passionate in working with students and helping them pursue their dreams, as I have been a student for MANY years. Moreover, I enjoy working with clients from various relationships, especially on the topic of sexual health, intimacy, and sex education.
I offer a safe, non-judgemental space for clients from various backgrounds to share their stories and experiences. As a bilingual practitioner, I have an immense respect for the diversity in language, culture, religion and sexual orientation. My special interest is helping individuals and partners navigate their sexual health in a safe space.
Sexual health is a topic that is often overshadowed with feelings of shame and guilt when it comes to open and honest communication between partners and the self. Often, our own sexual dialect is shrouded in confusion and negativity. I believe if we can open up the conversation around sexual health, then we are already taking a step in the right direction.
