(preferred pronoun Her/She)
I am a counsellor providing individual counselling to adults, adolescents and children. I offer deep listening and thoughtful collaboration to help you bring clarity and insight to the things in your life that you would like to change.
I strive to bear witness to your experiences, see the world through your eyes, and help you move toward being the person you want to be. I work with the day to day challenges of bringing optimal functioning, wellness and wisdom to your life, as well as with crises, disruptions, and transitions.
In my practice I am committed to embracing diversity and eliminating all forms of discrimination in the provision of counselling. I welcome all people irrespective of ethnicity, lifestyle choices, faith, sexual orientation and gender identity.
My approach to counselling is collaborative and flexible. I use different counselling approaches which enables me to tailor the counselling experience for the individual to best meet their needs. While my primary orientation is person-centred, I am also comfortable working in a more structured way to address immediate and specific goals. I can also incorporate therapeutic creative art into individual counselling sessions. I am also conversant with mindfulness-based approaches to healing. I offer individual and group mindfulness practice using creative arts and emotional health programs for children and teens around stress, anxiety and anger.
I have worked in a range of settings including counselling centres, natural health clinic and schools.
I am an ally and advocate for the LGBTQIA+ community. I volunteer with Open Doors Youth Service which supports the mental health of 12-25 year olds within the LGBTQIA+ community.
I am on Doclist through The Australian Lesbian Medical Association (ALMA) which is a list of doctors, dentists and mental health professionals recommended by lesbians and bisexual women around Australia.
My qualifications are Bachelor of Counselling, Dip of Nursing, Dip of Theology and am currently studying Grad Cert in Applied Neuroscience.
I am registered with Psychotherapy and Counselling Federation of Australia (PACFA).
