About

I am the Clinic Director at the VCS Mental Health Clinic, host of a psychotherapy podcast, I supervise and train clinical social workers, and teach trauma at the graduate level at Fordham University. Alongside this I maintain a small private practice because I so absolutely love working with the people on journeys of recovery from traumatic childhood experiences. You're my inspiration. I can help you to make sense of how you childhood experiences resonate through adult life in the form of struggles in relationships and with self esteem, depression and anxiety, chronic pain, shame, emptiness and codependency. You're not alone.
I work from a trauma-informed perspective, and integrate CBT, schema, narrative, motivational interviewing, interpersonal, insight-oriented, psychodynamic and other techniques in a supportive and collaborative space. I am originally from New Zealand and have also practiced in Japan and England.
Maybe there are things you have never told anyone, maybe you're having emotions and experiences that are hard to make sense of, maybe you carry shame that is hard to express. I make it easy to bring those things in. I weave vulnerability, humor, warmth, and insight into my work with people, journeying alongside and finding a path through together.
