I love to see people overcome their anxiety. I have a particular passion that if I was to have one super power it would be to change their thinking in this area. I love to provide an environment where it is safe for someone to begin their journey of healing and mostly I want to be the counsellor that I wish I had found on my own journey of healing.

With trauma or ongoing stress, physiological survival energy becomes stuck in our nervous system. We might make adjustments, like avoiding certain types of situations, or clenching certain muscles to dodge tricky feelings or sensations. We believe this keeps us safe from what we fear, but it can also have us feeling trapped in patterns that take a huge toll on our lives, health and relationships. My clients and I work together to discover ways to restore a sense of inner security, peace and passion for life.

This is a listing of female Counsellors, or providers who are female or women, rather than Counsellors who specialize in helping female clients or women.

What type of mental health professional is right for me?

Some of the most common types of mental health providers in Mernda are psychologists, licensed counsellors, therapists, psychotherapists, and licensed clinical social workers, all of whom diagnose mental health conditions and provide individualised treatment.

Services offered, education, and credentials vary by type of mental health professional. Each professional then may specialise in certain areas, such as depression, marriage counselling, or anxiety. Although many mental health providers are not licensed to prescribe medication, they may coordinate with a provider who can.

Both in-person and online therapy sessions are available from most psychologists.
