My name is Donita Rodrigues. I am a clinical psychologist based in Plattekloof and Claremont, Cape Town. I offer both short and long term individual therapy for children and adult clients to facilitate growth during life transitions and manage various aspects of psychological distress.


I have a special interest in working with infants and their caregivers (0 to 4 years), children (5 to 12 years), adolescents (12 to 18 years), as well as providing couple and family interventions and psychometric assessments. Furthermore, I enjoy assisting parents, including expectant parents, to establish and grow nurturing parent-child relationships, assisting those experiencing complicated pregnancies, coping with pregnancy loss, and enhancing parenting practices that may be complicated by family separations, divorce, death, mental illness or other issues
