I take an integrative and relational approach to my practice and offer a safe space for exploring life changes, including grief and loss, anxiety, stress, workplace issues, trauma and depression. I often companion others who are seeking a deeper level of personal or spiritual meaning.
I work with people who have a sense of something being ‘not quite right’ without knowing what exactly to address, those finding themselves in similar situations or repeating similar patterns of behaviour without knowing how or why. Those looking to make changes in their life but unsure where to start or who are seeking a greater sense of integration and connection.
Issues I have worked with include perfectionism, self esteem, people-pleasing, PTSD, relationship challenges, compulsive behaviours and anxiety.
My particular interest is in supporting clients to engage more deeply with their authentic self in their healing journey. I believe the spiritual dimension of our lives is an important aspect of healing, and honour all faith orientations.
Specialising in developmental and shock trauma, anxiety, chronic syndromes, cross cultural realities.
Combining IFS with Art therapy is an area of interest and passion.

I have extensive experience over the last 15 years working with adults in private practice and teens in school and not for profit settings. I weave many modalities through my practice including western and eastern philosophies. I’m an eternal learner and love to continually update my knowledge and skills for my profession and personally. We all journey, we all face hardship, we all have loss, heartbreak, pain, hurt, regret, sadness, anger, suffering, dreams, desires. Wherever you are on your journey, I look forward to meeting you there.
