About

I work predominantly with adolescents, young people, and adults, and have a special interest in working with people who are studying or working in creative fields (music, visual arts, dance), people from culturally and linguistically-diverse backgrounds and the LGBTQIA+ community, girls from age 12 and women of all ages. I apply an integrative approach comprised of evidence-based interventions such as CBT, ACT, EFT, NT and SFT. I have a special interest in Mindfulness, Music-Assisted Therapy, Animal-Assisted Therapy, Feminist Psychology and working with girls and women.
I utilise a warm, holistic, strengths-based and tailored approach to help people adapt to life's challenges and achieve their goals. I enjoy collaborating with my clients on identifying problems and creating integrative solutions to suit their lifestyle and needs.
I have 13 years experience working with a range of issues, from alcohol and other drugs, to complex trauma, family and relationship difficulties to struggles with life direction, depression, anxiety, OCD, gender and sexual identity issues and sex therapy. I find all of these areas to have great opportunities for treatment with a strengths-based approach.
