About

25 years of counselling experience really does make a difference. Having worked with thousands of clients I can recognise what’s happening for you faster. Reach out if you need support getting symptoms of anxiety & depression under control, tackling childhood trauma, trauma from intimate partner abuse, sexual assault or from workplace bullying. I use both cognitive & sensorimotor art therapies (guided drawing & Clay field therapy to rapidly improve your situation. Fundamental to my work is helping you to be more certain in yourself, better connected to yourself and others and confident in your decision making.
I'm the kind of psychologist that will challenge that critic in your head and foster a more compassionate voice. I'm a natural advocate, educator and advisor. I will champion you to get back on your feet and take control of your emotions so that you may embrace life fully. (Via Schema therapy, CBT, Strength based and Sensorimotor Arts therapies).
It's ok to not have all of our shit together some of the time. Most of the time people are doing the best they can and just need some strategies to cope better. I acknowledge that my therapeutic work is conducted on the land of the Kulin nation, the traditional custodians of the land and I pay my respect to elders, past, present and emerging.
