It can be really difficult to share your deepest concerns, fears and issues. It takes a lot of courage to make yourself vulnerable in this way; trusting another person with your ‘stuff’ can feel deeply uncomfortable and risky. With this in mind, I do my best to build a relationship with you (and your partner or partners) – in which you feel safe, accepted and respected. No matter why you have come to therapy, or what you may share during each session, my role is to try to help you – not judge you.

Kia ora, I am a lecturer at MIT where I teach and supervise up and coming counsellors in the bachelor of counseling program. I am an inquisitive and creative individual who enjoys working with people to unpack problem stories and find new ways to create a more preferred story. I work in Geek and Narrative Therapy, exploring stories of the individual and of the fandom world. I work mainly with adolescents but I am not limited to that. Outside of my practice I enjoy playing video games, writing, drawing, and going on hikes.

Tēnā tātou katoa. Welcome. Change can be very difficult, whether it’s happening around us or within us. It’s even more difficult if we or someone we care for are struggling or suffering. Psychodynamic psychotherapy can provide time, space, and safety to understand what we need to heal and flourish. Understanding alone may not seem enough, and it often isn’t. But understanding offers a place to rest and recover, to see where we’ve come from and where we’re going. Understanding shared with another person can be a powerful and effective step towards wellbeing.

My approach is optimistic, creative, and fun! Whilst problems can be serious and painful, I intend that our conversations will be uplifting. ‘Problem stories’ can become overwhelming and it can be almost impossible to separate ourselves from them. This is where narrative therapy comes in. Together, we will disentangle problems stories and you will step into new, life-giving stories.

Perhaps there is something specific that you would like to gain more insight into and healing from. Whatever your reason for coming, you will find a safe, non-judgemental and accepting environment where you will have a confidential space to bring whatever you would like to work through at a pace and depth that feels safe to you.

I can offer a warm, accepting, and confidential space where you feel listened to. I have experience supporting people with a wide range of issues including; feeling disconnected, social & relationship challenges, navigating life changes & loss, identity struggles & low self-worth; and people who identify as highly sensitive or neurodiverse. Psychotherapy allows us to explore why we feel and behave the way we do & can help us learn to manage our emotions. Developing a deeper understanding of ourselves and our patterns can give us new perspectives, help us make meaningful changes, and may help us accept things we can’t change.
