About

Want to create the life you want and reach your potential? Could you do with a little help to solve your problems? Need some support to fast track some of your goals? Well thats what I'm all about! I'm an experienced counsellor and psychotherapist and I work from a trauma-informed and client-led perspective. I'm kind, but direct when needed and support in a solutions focused manner. I love to laugh, and enjoy helping people work through challenges and achieve their goals. I'm a certified DBT (Dialectical Behaviour Therapy) practitioner and run DBT Skills groups in person at the Crows Nest, Sydney rooms or online.
I've been working in the mental health sector in a variety of client facing roles over the last eight years. I've worked in large NGOs, with multi-disciplinary teams, in small grass roots organisations and in private organisations providing therapeutic support to clients with complex mental health, addictions, relationship & family conflict, and trauma.
Just having a down to earth professional to talk these things through with really does help. Change happens! It's so important for you to feel like your counsellor gets you, and choosing a therapist can be daunting! Why dont you just book in for a trial session and see how you go?
