I am rarely taking new clients atm due to long wait times to get in. Hi! I am a general psychologist with over three decades of experience. I came to therapy/counselling with a non-pathologising view of symptoms and behaviour. My view is that the vast majority of symptoms of "mental illness" are an understandable response to various life circumstances. Some deep in our past, some in our present. I am passionate about helping people to heal from trauma and live full lives. I also work with a range of common problems such as anxiety and depression. You can transform your life. Via telehealth, I can see clients in any location.
Do you struggle feeling like you are not a good person, partner, or parent? Are you going through a transitional phase of your life? Is performance anxiety getting in your way of competing? You are not alone! There are times we all feel like we are not enough or just can't get that balance in life but knowing that other people go through it doesn't help. You want action, you want a plan, and steps you can take to make that change. You want someone you can trust and talk to that is not involved or connected. That is where I come in.

Hello! I'm a registered Counselling Psychologist and Director at iPsychology who is passionate about working collaboratively with people to reach their goals. We emphasize the importance of the therapeutic relationship, viewing each client as unique in their experience and needs. For over ten years I have worked with children, adolescents and adults and families in educational, private, hospital and community settings and support the team here at iPsychology. We work with clients new to therapy and those wanting to work on a deeper therapeutic level, with client’s describing us as authentic, nurturing... and light-hearted.
I wholeheartedly believe in therapeutic healing through safety, compassion & acceptance in the present moment. If we are in distress, feeling lost, alone, sad, anxious or angry it can be hard to know whom to talk with or, what to talk about. Sometimes we don't want to talk at all to start with and, would prefer to do a creative/movement exercise to express ourselves. Maybe we know exactly what we want to talk about and explore, maybe learning new skills to integrate into daily life. I can be there to support you, whatever stage you are at.
I am a warm, respectful and skilled senior Clinical Psychologist. I train with world-class therapists and continuously refine my practice to ensure that the client experience is as helpful and enriching as it can be. Compassion is very important to me — I won't impose my agenda but rather, will meet you where you are, with kindness and attunement. While providing a safe space to express, I also bring a highly specialised set of skills that are not always common or present among mental health professionals. I will do my best to help you see things in new ways, to feel better, and to take new steps towards what matters most for you.
