About

You don't always have to see a psychologist for your mental health. As an Accredited Mental Health Social Worker my therapy can be funded by Medicare, NDIS, Victim Assist, Workcover QLD, National Redress Scheme etc. My areas of expertise are depression, anxiety, trauma, stress management, grief and loss, infertility & sensory sensitivity issues that include ASD, ADHD, High Sensitivity, anger problems and parenting issues. I work with all adults on these difficulties regardless of age, gender and cultural background. I also provide support for people who have a diagnosis of Psychosis, Bipolar Disorder, BPD, addictions etc.
In sessions my main focus is to provide EMDR therapy. EMDR is a form of therapy that focuses on healing you, rather than helping you manage your difficulties. If you are interested in healing and making your life changes permanent, contact me and we can discuss how EMDR therapy can help you.
Life can be hard and challenging and sometimes it can just be really unfair! Difficult life events can put anyone off balance, sometimes temporarily but sometimes also for a longer period of time. I am a genuine, non-judging, caring mental health professional with 15 years of experience who offers affordable & high qualitative therapy for everyone.
