My client is feeling hurt, misunderstood, and in emotional pain. They aren't having the relationships they would like with their partner, their children, their extended family, or co-workers. They perhaps aren't having the relationship they would like with themselves. They may be suffering big emotional swings, perhaps using food, anger, work, alcohol, shopping, etc., as ways to manage their pain. Perhaps they have lost someone, or perhaps they have been betrayed by someone they love....They want things to be different in their lives, but don't know how to get there....tell me about it, and we'll work together to make a change.

I have a special interest in relationship counselling, parenting issues, depression, bipolar, anxiety, OCD, and borderline personality disorder. Medicare rebates available with a Mental Health Care Plan referral from a GP.

I am a warm, compassionate and empathetic therapist, who believes that being truly heard and acknowledged is critical to the therapeutic process. While I have three degrees in Psychology, and knowledge and experience of multiple therapies, strategies and techniques, I believe that the validation of the client's lived experience is where healing starts.
