Karen currently practise as a psychodynamic psychotherapist in Parktown North and specialise in working with adolescents and adults in individual psychotherapy.

I did my internship through WITS. During my time at Rahima Moosa Child &Family unit, I worked with children, adolescents and families.

My work here included individual, group and family therapy interventions as well as psychometric assessments. I have also worked at various community clinics providing individual psychotherapy.

Currently I work at Chris Hani Baragwanath Hospital where I also completed my community service. Here I offer individual and group psychotherapy, as well as supervision and training of psychologists.
