About Me

Master of Counselling (Monash University)

Graduate Diploma in Psychology (Melbourne University)

Registered clinical member of PACFA (Psychotherapy and Counselling Federation of Australia)

I am super passionate about my work as a Counsellor after many years of working in the corporate world left me searching for a more fulfilling and meaningful career. 

I find that so many of my clients echo this search – in addition to wanting to address their day-to-day life struggles – they are searching for something more. 

And this is where I love to be, fully attentive, empathising with my clients but most of all working alongside them to explore ways of improving all aspects of their lives, be that work, relationships, childhood attachment wounds or trauma.

My Approach

I view anxiety, depression, behavioural issues, anger management as well as problems in relationships as the symptoms or our best attempts to navigate life’s challenges. While we will work together to find new, more adaptive strategies, I also believe it’s important explore and heal from the underlying issues behind them otherwise it’s often just a band-aid approach to therapy.

Some of the modalities I use in our work together include Cognitive Behaviour Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, EMDR, Emotionally Focused Therapy, Art therapy.

All of these approaches are aiming to help the clients see themselves, their lives, relationships and traumatic events through different lenses, have deeper understanding and transformation and move forward.

Finally I treat my clients with respect and compassion to the best of my ability and I hope together we can achieve a shift in the quality of their relationships and quality of their life.
