I work with couples who want to actively engage in change to help them gain insight into themselves and the world, using their emotional reactions, thoughts and feeling. I believe people attain the greatest well-being through self- and other-acceptance. Understanding repetitive, unwanted patterns helps people step out of the fray and gain a meta-perspective making us aware of different choices that can be made moving forward. I don't work with couples when there are serious issues of power and control, or interpersonal violence (physical or emotional). I do not write Court reports, reports or serve as an expert witness.

I am working with individuals and couples from diverse backgrounds, I help with issues ranging from identity and relationships through to anxiety, grief, depression and chronic trauma resulting from abuse and neglect early in life.
You may have come to this site because you feel stuck – because you are not moving in the direction you most want to. You may feel aspects of your life could be better, or you may be dealing with problems that feel overwhelming. These feelings may be related to your work, relationships or health, or they may be about your attitudes and feelings toward yourself. You may not know what is wrong or why you feel the way you do. Whatever the issue, I hope I am able to help.

I love working with clients who are couples and individuals, those grappling with addictions, adolescents and also those experiencing incarceration.
I create a safe and open space for my clients to therapeutically explore their issues, challenges and concerns. My ideal client is someone who is open to exploring the connections between their trauma and life experiences and how this has impacted their lives in positive and negative ways. I like to work with clients that are action and goal oriented, as I like to set homework tasks and brain training exercises to re-wire their thinking in a healthier and more functional way. I am very conversational and my clients like this approach to discussing areas of concern to them.

I also offer EMDR, CBT, relaxation techniques, motivational interviewing, career counselling, couples & family therapy.
Many people sometimes struggle to understand their emotions and behaviour - maybe they get angry too easily, or become upset for no apparent reason. Other people are often well aware of why they need some mental health support, due to historical and / or current problems. I always ask clients: "What do you want to be different in your life when our work is done?" The client's answer may be specific or vague, surprising or long-known to them. Either way, I can help you answer those and many other questions - but only if you truly want to overcome the mental health challenges that stop you from behaving like the person you want to be.

Feeling stressed and burnt out carrying all the emotional burden for your family? Children and young people face a complex world in 2021. Families need support and connection. It’s too common to feel lonely and tired. It takes a village to raise a child, a solid support network is everything. As a mother and partner I know it can feel like we carry all the responsibility of the family. How can we help our loved ones when we are so burnt out? I love working with women, children, teenagers and partners, to re-connect and address serious issues in the family. Too often we let problems get worse and soon they become overwhelming.

Bayside Mediation specialises in helping those couples who are thinking of separating or who have already separated but not yet engaged with the Family Law process, understand the process and potential outcomes ahead of them. Our clients are seeking guidance and clarity; help to navigate and understand the Family Law process. Our clients are looking for a better way to separate, a better way than litigation to end a long term relationship. They can be in conflict or have issues in dispute. But ultimately, they don't want to waste thousands of dollars and years of their lives in litigation; they want another legal option, us.

What type of mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist, psychologist, or counsellor, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.

How to find a therapist or counsellor in Saint Kilda?
When looking to find a therapist, start by considering training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Psychologists in Saint Kilda specialise in therapeutic approaches such as CBT, EMDR, and Interpersonal Therapy (IPT), among others. Finding a psychologist or counsellor who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

Can I afford counselling?
Yes. Most counsellors offer reasonable rates or will work on a sliding scale basis. Many accept health insurance. Feel free to discuss this when you contact the counsellor.
