About

Sometimes we require a helping hand when adjusting to an ever-changing world. I want to help you develop skills and tools to create sustainable fulfilment within your life. Common challenges we all face include issues with self-esteem, processing negative or strong emotions, work-life balance, adjusting to change, developing meaningful relationships, and discovering our purpose. In addition, stress, depression, anxiety, grief and loss, and interpersonal conflict can obstruct our ability to experience life to its fullest potential. You have the ability to unlock your own power, and I want to help you discover that inner strength.
I am a multi-ethnic American counsellor (Polish/African American) living in Melbourne. We can identify areas for improvement, set goals and take action steps toward living your best life. I collaborate with clients experiencing ADHD, bipolar, anxiety, depression, OCD, trauma, PTSD, sexual dysfunction, relationship issues and eating disorders.
I am passionate about helping you connect to yourself, others and the universe. I am accepting of all forms of spirituality, ethnic and cultural backgrounds and sexual orientations. My hours are flexible with evening and weekend appointments available if necessary. Video and phone sessions are also available. www.freeformcounselling.com.au/
