Whether you've encountered an unexpected difficulty in your life, need to work through past events, or simply want to make some changes, we all need some help now and again. I'm a queer-friendly, sex-positive counsellor who works in a broad range of areas including depression, stress, trauma, grief and loss, sexual and gender identity, and relationship difficulties.
As a counsellor, my role is to walk beside you as we explore how you can become the best version of yourself, whether that is through overcoming a problem, examining the past, or simply exploring who you are and what it means to be you. You are the expert on your life, I'm here to help you explore it.
I have a background in academia, private industry, and the public service, before becoming a counsellor. I understand that people’s lives rarely take them in the direction they were expecting and I'm focussed on helping people survive and thrive through those course corrections.
