Looking for a queer, neurodivergent and culturally affirming counsellor? Hi! I'm Mariyah (she/her), a registered counsellor. I have a strong curiosity for people, the human experience and assisting people in achieving their best potential and life goals. I'm passionate in working with individuals in the LGBTQ+, culturally diverse, and neurodivergent communities and others who experience mental health concerns. I enjoy taking a person-centered approach where you lead where our sessions go — whether that is to “fix” a particular problem you’re experiencing, or to better understand yourself.
I also enjoy working with attachment concerns and how it has affected you in adulthood. My approach is holistic, where I will often try to get to know what’s happening in all aspects of your life to create a well-rounded understanding of your strengths and experiences. I draw from a range of therapeutic approaches, based on what feels right for you.
I strive to approach sessions in a curious and compassionate manner, prioritising your needs. If you feel that my approach resonates with you and what you're experiencing, please don't hesitate to reach out! You can do this by emailing me, or contacting Nest Psychology Brisbane's administration team. I look forward to connecting with you!

I approach sessions in a non-judgemental manner, where I'll hear you out and collaboratively create a game-plan of how you would like to proceed with what we do in future sessions. I have experience in working with various concerns and experiences and endeavour to accurately support you and your needs. To ensure this, the first session will be based around getting to know you and your story.

I will often combine treatment types based on your needs but I lean towards using Narrative Therapy, ACT, Person-Centered Therapy and creative activities in sessions. Each session might look slightly different based on the treatment type, but I will always check in with you to see what you would prefer as I want you to get the most out of therapy.
