About

I am a counsellor and psychotherapist working in the existential humanist tradition. That means I work with all sorts of issues including general life issues, mental health, addictive behaviours and relationships to name a few. I am registered with PACFA (Psychotherapy and Counselling Federation Australia) which is the national peak body for counsellors and psychotherapists in Australia and have experience in youth mental health, alcohol and other drugs counselling and anxiety. If you are experiencing issues with anxiety, life issues, substance use, addiction, including behavioural addictions, please do not hesitate to reach out.
If you are struggling with a porn or sex addiction, (or have concerns about a partner/family member) a supportive, understanding therapist who understands your unique situation can be vital part of your recovery plan. If you are struggling with any addiction, or have concerns such as anxiety, depression, trauma or relationship concerns, I can also help.
I am currently offering online sessions via Google Meet or any suitable platform, by appointment only. To make an enquiry please get in touch. Your first intake/consultation session is free of charge. It is important that you feel comfortable with your chosen therapist. Feel free to reach out by email with any questions you may have as well.
