I work with all people and specialise in working with the following cohorts - LGBTIQA+ people and their families/communities, people in non-normative relationship structures, people working in the sex industry, people experiencing or recovering from family violence or intimate partner violence. I am passionately interested in the interaction between systemic marginalisation and mental ill-health, such as the interaction between intra-personal, interpersonal and structural oppression.

Strengths and Areas of Focus: ​​LGBTIQ mental health and wellbeing, trans and gender diverse young people and their families, questions of gender or sexuality, gender dysphoria, family violence and intimate partner violence, relationship support for couples and those in non-normative relationship structures​.
