About

Clients can expect unwavering positive regard, warmth, relatability, and commitment to providing a therapeutic environment free from judgement in which you can feel safe, respected and accepted. My aim is to help clients to get a deeper understanding of themselves and their experiences and how they are connecting and operating in the world in which they find themselves. I hold space for clients to be vulnerable, to explore, to process, to grow, to learn and to find courage and confidence to move toward desired change.
I have interest in health psychology and caregiving strain, supporting clients in the context of preparing, adjusting and rehabilitation from illness, injury, and surgical procedures and supporting clients living with chronic health conditions. Being a mother, I am also passionate about supporting women and their families in the transition to parenthood.
I feel privileged to work with adults and older adults to navigate disruption in psychological wellness and life transitions across domains such as career, relationships, parenthood, health, illness, loss and ageing.
