Biography

I am a Therapist and Registered Social Worker and have been working therapeutically with children, young people and adults for over 20 years. I have worked in leadership roles in community organisations over many years and have particular expertise in the area of concerning and harmful sexual behaviour. I use psychodynamic theory to underpin my practice and have skills in understanding trauma from a neurobiological (brain/body) perspective. I believe that therapy is a relationship between the client and therapist and that as a therapist, it is a privilege to walk alongside clients as they make changes in their lives. I endeavour to do so with care and compassion.
