About

I have a wide range of experience working with adolescents and adults with a variety of diagnoses and concerns. I am passionate about helping people to work through anxiety, depression, adjustment disorder, PTSD, developmental trauma, and grief and loss among other concerns. I work with clients to address the concerns that are coming up for them in the here and now, to provide the tools and strategies for immediate support. I feel it is also important to explore how this has come to be including the impact of past events, trauma, underlying core beliefs, and maladaptive coping strategies to work towards the best future possible.
I am an Accredited Mental Health Social Worker and see people under Medicare, privately, through WorkCover and Private Health. I am trained in, and predominately use Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Motivational Interviewing (MI) and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) when working alonside people
I appreciate how difficult it can be to reach out for support. I want the people I work alongside to know I offer a confidential, safe, warm and comfortable space. That in this we work together to explore ways of working through what is happening and towards their goals.
