(She/her) Tēnā koutou katoa :) I understand the bravery and vulnerability that comes with reaching out for support, and do my best to create a compassion-filled, safe environment that nurtures your wellbeing and growth. As a counsellor my approach has been described as warm, gentle and open. I have been involved in a range of health and community services over the last 8 years, and have experience in supporting folks of diverse ages, genders, ethnicities and spiritualities. (PLEASE NOTE: Apologies I am currently not taking on new ACC clients) Potential Funding Options: -I am Hope (under 25yr olds) -Will to Live (supporting those in the rural community) -WINZ (disability allowance) -EAP Clearhead -OCP -NZCGT (for those impacted by cults) -I get that therapy is expensive and believe it should be accessible to everyone, to help accommodate this I also offer a sliding scale for private paying clients.
