About

I am a counsellor and psychotherapist located in Williamstown. I work with individual adults from 18 up who would like to gain a deeper understanding of themselves, others, and the world. I have a particular interest in trauma, whether that be from attachment issues, abusive or hurtful relationships, accidents and injury, illness, or natural disasters. I am interested in the transitions made throughout the lifespan, both expected and unexpected, gradual and sudden. I also have clinical experience with anxiety, depression, grief and loss, recovery from family violence, and support for parents of special needs children.
Working from a psychodynamic framework, I provide a safe and respectful environment in which your experience is seen and heard. As we work together to explore your experiences and how you respond to them, self-understanding deepens, which opens the way for greater choice and agency, more fulfilling relationships, and a more meaningful engagement with life.
I currently offer counselling sessions in person (face-to-face) or by phone or a secure online video platform, depending on your preference. Please contact me for a free initial conversation so that you can ask questions and get a sense of what it would be like to work with me.
