Change is hard at first, messy in the middle and gorgeous at the end.

Change is not always easy, but remaining stuck in patterns that keep you from achieving your life goals is harder in the end.

I am a social worker, counsellor and somatic based trauma informed yoga teacher and a registered member of the Australian Association of Social Workers.

As a counsellor, I am genuine with my clients, I provide a supportive, empathetic and collaborative approach to assist clients with skills, strategies and education to improve their mental health. I work from a person centred and trauma informed perspective.

I love working collaboratively with clients, driven by your goals and aspirations, I will assist in working towards attaining achievable goals.

I have experience in working with people across all life stages, particularly adults experiencing symptoms of anxiety, depression, post-traumatic stress disorder and personality disorders.

I am deeply passionate about my role and consider it a privilege to work with people to journey towards change
