I am a grief and relationship counsellor focusing on disenfranchised grief; the grief and loss situations that sit in the shadows, unacknowledged or stigmatised. Whatever your loss, my priority is companioning you in your journey towards integrating the loss, making sense of what has happened, and finding joy and meaning again.

Your grief experience is unique to you, whether it is pregnancy loss, newborn death, the death of a pet, job loss, divorce or relationship breakups. I am here to support you in your grieving process, help you make sense of the loss, find meaning as you move forward, manage your emotional distress and help you reconnect to hope and joy again.

One of my specialties is working with people who’ve discovered their partner (or parent) is LGBTQIA+. My lived experience and professional training equip me with empathy and understanding of your experience. I will help you rediscover your strength, reconnect to Self, gain clarity, and learn to trust and live again.
