Areas of Expertise

I specialise in working with women and teens in late adolescence. I can support clients through counselling in the following areas: ​

  • Anxiety

  • Depression 

  • Relationship difficulties

  • Life transitions

  • Identity 

  • Pregnancy

  • Transition to motherhood

  • Parenting challenges

  • Career & workplace issues

  • Well-being 

I have trained in family counselling, trauma, grief, mental health, domestic violence and lifespan development. I participate in regular clinical supervision and continuing education to ensure I can support my clients ethically and with integrity. 

I am particularly passionate about supporting the mental well-being of new mothers. I volunteer as a Counsellor at Orana Early Support in Sutherland, working with parents of children 0-3 years. 

 

I also believe in the importance of providing adolescents with a non-judgemental, safe space to talk. I have worked with high school students as a volunteer Mentor for the Raise Foundation. 

How I work with clients

When life gets tough, it can be easy to underestimate our own capabilities. I believe we all have an inner strength that can help guide us through difficult times and chart our path for the future. Counselling provides an opportunity to get to know yourself better, and explore how you want to live your life. 

 

With this focus on strength, I also draw on techniques from a range of different modalities depending on what may be most helpful. These include:

  • Person-centred Therapy

  • Solution-focused Therapy

  • Narrative Therapy 

  • Psychodynamic Theory

 

I believe it's important to take a flexible approach to how we work together, because each client is unique.

 

We all have our own story
