About

Hello, I’m a queer, white, Internal Family Systems therapist, family violence social worker & meditation facilitator. I have experience working with victim-survivors of family violence, people with chronic mental illness & complex trauma, LGBTQIA & sex worker communities. I can support you through deep emotional distress, feelings of unworthiness & shame, disembodiment & disconnection, trauma (sexual, relational, intergenerational), understanding your sexuality, conscious boundary setting, developing needs-based communication skills & unpacking whiteness/white privilege/white-supremacist thinking.
I specialise in Internal Family Systems & integrate mindfulness techniques & social justice principles to offer a radically compassionate & non-judgemental therapeutic experience. I offer an approach which supports you to practice relating lovingly to your internal world & make sustainable, meaningful change.
Sessions unfold at your unique rhythm, follow the direction of your desired outcomes & honour the pace & depth of your inner exploration. I welcome all aspects of your being, I validate the ways systemic oppression impacts & shapes your inner experiences & I celebrate the creative & well-intentioned ways you've navigated obstacles & adversity.
