About

Do you feel overwhelmed, exhausted or struggling with motivation? Do you have sensitivities that leave you feeling judged by others, or misunderstood? Do you experience stuck patterns of behaviour that effect your ability to feel satisfaction in life and in relationships? Do you feel pressure to conform to societal norms and expectations, which leaves you feeling "othered" and isolated? I see you! You are not alone and you don't have to work this out by yourself. Together we can explore your lived experience and the many ways it impacts your sense of self, worthiness and belonging.
My "specialty" is working with overwhelm, anxiety and sensitivities in adolescent and adult populations. I am deeply passionate about working with intersectionalality, minority group experiences, LGBTIQ+, gender and neurodiversity. My work extends from individuals to couples and groups. I work within a non-pathologising and non-judgmental framework.
My work is founded on a deep sense of reverence for difference and in doing so, aims to support and celebrate authentic self expression - Celebrating difference, rather than opposing it. My approach is attachment focused and deeply relational. I'm interested in exploring and honoring the wisdom of your embodied experience - then, now and next...
