B.Sc. (Hons)., Assoc MAPS

I work with clients who are experiencing emotional and/or social difficulties. I also work with clients who are experiencing difficulty in relation to relationship changes, parenting with mental health difficulties, and issues relating to gender and/or sexuality.

My main areas of work are around emotional and social difficulties which may be ongoing or related to specific changes or life events. I work with the client towards managing their difficulties and clarifying the steps that they would like to take to create a richer life.

My therapeutic style is to empower clients to manage their difficulties and create a richer life. We do this by identifying and using pre-existing strengths, as well as developing new skills and strategies. Depending on the interests of each client, this might involve strategies to encourage new ways of thinking and behaving, mindfulness, problem solving or exploring the influence of past events. I also work with clients to clarify their values and goals so that they can move closer to them as they begin to manage their difficulties.

I work with clients who have:

  • depression
  • anxiety
  • difficulty managing emotions
  • sexuality and gender diversity
  • difficulties with life changes

I consult at the East Melbourne practice.
