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 workplace bullying. I use both cognitive behavioural & 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 will challenge that negative critic in your head and foster a more compassionate voice. I'm a natural advocate, educator and advisor. I will teach you lots of easy to apply strategies to regulate your mood and improve your relationships. I love working with adults and couples.
It's ok not to have all of our shit together some of the time. Feeling understood, safe and not judged are central to my work with clients. 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.
