About

I am a creative and collaborative clinician with a practice wisdom that has developed over twenty-five years in clinical and public health roles working with individuals, kids and teens, couples and groups. I work with clients to build a collaborative, solution -focused safe place for us to work together. My approach is eclectic, utilising different clinical lenses I have practiced across years working in Alcohol & Other Drug, Oncology Hospital Social Work, Hospital Mental Health and Juvenile Justice sectors as well as in private practice.
I practice non-judgemental, collaborative and solution focused therapy with clients, prioritising rapport building, safety, ethics and honesty. I tailor different clinical modalities to the needs of each client. For those feeling reluctant or resistant to counselling I practice 'No Bullshit Therapy' (NBT), designed by a clinical psychologist.
Metaphors using water help explain my conceptualisation of therapy. The ocean, like life, is beautiful, vast and sometimes dangerous, and the 'waves of life' will come at us no matter what we think or do. Good therapy, in my opinion, gives us a surfboard or a boogie board to ride over those waves rather than be dumped by them.
