About

My clients come to me with a variety of issues and needs. Relationships, mental health issues, workplace problems, parenting challenges, and difficulty managing emotional outbursts. They want to be listened to, heard, understood and cared about. They want to understand themselves and the people they love, and they want to know how to process their pain, calm their emotions and reframe their thoughts.
I use a range of therapies to help clients process and resolve their issues. My special interest is working with clients who had abusive/traumatic childhoods. I was a child and family counsellor and a child sexual assault counsellor. I now work with adult clients working through mental health issues due to childhood trauma.
I offer a holistic approach, supporting clients to explore issues, break down barriers to recovery, and provide effective strategies to empower them to move forward in their lives. I also deliver community workshops on topics such as holistic wellness, leadership, emotional intelligence, assertiveness, parenting, and processing childhood trauma.
