My specialities include complex post traumatic stress disorder, childhood neglect/abuse, attachment issues, sex and love addictions, dissociative tendencies, and couples and family counselling.
I draw from a range approaches depending upon your needs and preferences. Among them are cognitive behavioral therapy, interpersonal neurobiological ideas, family systems therapy, and attachment theory. It is common for clients to arrive with issues identified only to discover that there are other deeper and more fundamental issues which underlie them. I work at a pace compatible with your ability to integrate change. I am gentle and encouraging, but firm and forthright. I provide a free initial consultation so you can determine whether you feel comfortable with me. My aim is for you to feel welcome, safe and comfortably challenged.

Are you struggling with troubling issues in your important relationships? Not feeling heard or respected? Do you feel defensive, or attacked by your partner and can't trust or feel supported in your relationship. Or perhaps you're a man struggling with an internet or porn addiction that is consuming too much of your life. Do you have a teen that is struggling with confidence, anxiety and motivation? Are you overwhelmed by feelings of anxiety most of the time, and can't relax, or feel safe? These are all issues that I have successfully worked with in the past.

Hi; thank you for viewing my profile. As a Registered Psychologist since 1997, and a therapist for many years before that, it has been my pleasure to work with individuals, couples and families. Just so you know, I will listen to you and support you in managing the issues that bring you to therapy. I deeply appreciate the effort and commitment people demonstrate as they work through their concerns; I consider it a privilege to assist in that process.

Couples sometimes also decide to have individual sessions, and strict confidentiality is maintained.
In my varied practice, I see youth and adults, addressing issues ranging from mental health concerns to life transitions. I use a client-centred approach, respecting that you are the expert in your own life. The therapeutic relationship we create allows you to explore your reality to the extent that you want to, in a trusting, calm and gentle environment. I draw from a number of different therapeutic styles, suited to you as a person, your worldview and your interests (talk, art, sandtray, play). I practice from an anti-oppressive, inclusive perspective, and also provide clinical supervision for counsellors.

I love my work! For over 20 years I've been helping individuals and couples create a life they love with proven, measurable, effective and fast methods to break through old patterns, get past limiting beliefs, and create possibilities they never knew existed. This isn't therapy like you've seen it on TV or in the movies, it doesn't have to take years. If you're tired of the "same old, same old" you deserve to feel better.

I have experience helping individuals, couples and families, who have faced relationship struggles, grief, trauma, anxiety, violence, addictions, identity struggles, depression and much more, regain hope and ultimately find their own success.
When confronted with challenging times - whether it is struggling with mental health, your relationships, addiction, identity or just not knowing what to do - feelings of despair, loneliness, desperation, and fear can overwhelm hope.

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 Victoria?
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 Victoria specialize in therapeutic approaches such as CBT, EMDR, and Interpersonal Therapy (IPT), among others. Finding a psychologist or therapist 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.

How to use my insurance?
Many therapists accept health insurance. Check to see if your insurance is covered. Feel free to discuss this when you contact the therapist.
