Announcement icon I am available for online and in-person sessions.
I specialise in issues of self-growth and identity, family and couples therapy, parent-child bonding, working with the LGBTIQA+ community, family of origin exploration and issues, relational and complex trauma such as childhood abuse or neglect, working with men who use violence, and attachment issues. I enjoy working with individuals and couples to really unpack their experiences of relationships and sense of self. I am interested in how our families of origin influence how we think and act in our current relationships. Please note that email is the best way to contact me.
I want to be explicit in saying I am inclusive and warmly welcome all LGBTIQA+. CALD, poly, sex-workers and any other diversities you might be wary that therapists may not understand. I offer afterhour appointments 11AM - 9PM on Wed and Sat in the Inner West and online so I am accessible for people who are unavailable to attend a 9-5 appointment.
I’m glad something about me resonated with you so you clicked on my profile. I don’t know how I could possibly summarise me as a professional or a person on using words on a page. I think the therapist-client relationship and chemistry is more important than a list of credentials or a fancy spiel. If you would like to connect with me please send me an email.
