I have worked in disability and mental health services for 3.5 years. I work with kids, teens, and adults and my decision regarding the type of therapy to provide clients is always based on individual needs and preferences. My approach is non-judgmental, empathetic, and educational. I like to be a sound board to your worries and educate you on reasons problematic situations and negative moods occur. In the past I have struggled with mental health problems and can relate to the challenge of navigating obligations/responsibilities while struggling with mental illness.

I originally got into counselling with the hope of providing an informal, non-judgmental and safe space for individuals, couples and families to feel supported when going through vulnerable times. I began my career through volunteering with various agencies assisting with child safety and abuse survivors. I then began working with beautiful people with mental health diagnosis - particularly PTSD, anxiety and depression.

Hello, it's nice to meet you here. If you are struggling with eating or body image issues, I can support you to find a way out. You may be stuck in cycles and patterns of behaviours with food that you know are not helpful but you can't find a way to make changes. You may be dissatisfied with your body and long to find some peace but don't know where to start. You may have had a difficult relationship with food for a long or short time and would love for this to no longer be an issue in your life. You may have previously accessed health services for your eating disorder or you may never spoken of these challenges to anyone.

EMDR and Hypnotherapy for quitting drinking, emotional eating and releasing trauma. Have you tried repeatedly to quit drinking alcohol or emotional eating and are now feeling defeated or stuck? You have likely been trying to fix a subconscious problem with conscious methods (willpower/ talk therapy), which doesn't usually work. If you have experienced trauma you may be unwittingly self-medicating to cope with emotional flashbacks by using alcohol, food or smoking. These problems may have effected your confidence or relationships.

As well as typical talk therapy, I utilise non-verbal, creative interventions to enable the expression of feelings, emotions and thoughts through drawing or using miniatures during sessions. This helps to communicate relevant issues and enhance self-understanding, self-development and healing when finding the right words is simply too difficult.

Having a harsh inner critic, boundary or control issues, addictions, out of control emotions or feeling numb inside are all symptoms of trauma. NOT signs of weakness or personality flaws. Trauma is caused by the mix of overwhelm and powerlessness. We didn't have to suffer childhood abuse or tragedies to experience the above symptoms in life. Removal of love, criticism, expectations of who we should be or parents who struggled with their own issues were traumatic, and lead to adaptations we needed to survive. If any of these resonate, you are not alone. I talk to people like you. And like them, you too can heal.

Female Counsellors

Does it matter what gender my therapist is?

In general, this is not an important factor, as there is no relationship between a therapist’s gender and their efficacy. Some clients, however, prefer to see therapists of a particular gender, whether due to their own past experiences with men and women, or ingrained beliefs about how people of different genders think and behave. Exploring the roots of such preferences and considering what one wants to address in therapy can help someone determine whether their therapist’s gender truly matters to them.

Should I see a female therapist?

Many people—not just women—prefer to see a female therapist, either because they believe that a woman will be able to relate to their specific challenges (for example, sexism in the workplace) or because they imagine feeling more comfortable disclosing sensitive information to a woman. Such beliefs may not turn out to be accurate, however, and adhering too rigidly to a gender preference can at times hinder a client from finding the best therapeutic match.

Do therapists get specific training to help with women’s concerns?

Therapists are trained to provide care to clients of any gender. However, some therapists—both men and women—may pursue additional training in feminist therapy, gender-specific issues, or women’s mental health. Female clients may wish to ask prospective therapists whether they have received specific training in the client’s primary area(s) of concern, or whether they have worked extensively with women on issues similar to their own.

How can I inquire about a therapist’s experience in treating women?

It’s OK—even encouraged!—to ask a therapist directly whether and how often they have treated women in the past, or whether they have treated women dealing with the client’s most prominent concern(s). Competent therapists will be happy to share their educational background, preferred treatment modalities, and prior client experience to help an individual find the therapist best suited to their needs.
