I aim to provide an individualised, holistic, empathic and caring service that is both personal and highly professional. I enjoy working with individuals and couples in providing tools, techniques and strategies towards living a life of authenticity, to be more present focused and more in the moment.
I provide assistance for many concerns, including depression, stress, anxiety, adjustment to big life changes, gender dysphoria and transition, sexuality and sexual identity concerns, relationship difficulties and medical concerns.
In addition, I have an interest in using modalities such as Schema Therapy to address the impacts of minority stress and social trauma due to neurodiversity (e.g. Autism, ADHD), cultural identity, socioeconomic status, sexual identity, gender expression or identity.
I have an intersectional approach that is trauma informed, neurodiversity affirming, gender affirming, and LGBTQA+ affirming.
Appointments are available in person in Summer Hill or via Telehealth (secure videoconference) if clinically appropriate.
