Complex trauma at any age can make understanding oneself, one's reactions, painful emotions, and relationships mystifying. I'm registered with Blue Knot Foundation as a trauma informed therapist. If you have anxiety or depression symptoms, anger or hurt, I have been working beside people to manage and reduce these issues since the 20th century. I'll do my best to give you tools to use right from your first visit. If you are in a remote area I can provide sessions via Skype or FaceTime. I know a lot about family and domestic violence and how people can get to come back from what happened to them or what they did to others.

As I'm a Medicare provider you may be able to claim a rebate for individual sessions if you bring a mental healthcare plan from your GP. If you seek relationship counselling I have been skilling couples for many years. I'm a senior consultant for Converge International and am contracted to Open Arms (Veterans and Veterans Families Counselling Service).

If you are experiencing difficult things from other people at work or at home it would be unfair to treat you and put aside things that came at you. That's why I assess what is happening to a person like you rather than just treating symptoms alone. We work together to work things out and I work very hard to keep you feeling as safe as you need to be.
