About

I have a deep interest and expertise in couples therapy or work with any two people in relationship conflict. This is an area of therapy that is deep, wild and transformative. I love to find a door to walk through to re-ignite the aliveness that can be lost in the universal struggle of life, by finding an open hearted way to listen and wrestle with the layers of hurt and pain, and to re-connect and honour the space between. It is a bold step that couples must take, but it is a journey that is met with rich reward.
I specialise in working with couples and individuals. I work with people in all aspects of emotional, spiritual and relational disturbance. Some areas of focus include anxiety, depression, grief, trauma, stress, life transitions and interpersonal relationship issues. I am also trained in biography work, that is, deep exploration of the life phases.
I love to meet clients exactly where they are, follow their own unique process to resolve issues and develop a greater sense of self and purpose in the world. I provide a safe holding space in which to feel nurtured and guided towards healing. I offer Medicare rebates with a Mental Health Treatment Plan from a doctor. I am located in West Footscray.
