About me

I am genuinely curious, compassionate, gentle, and abundantly patient. I am committed to exploring what makes sense to you and how this affects your behavior while empowering you in your ability to accept, grow and learn.

Throughout my 20 year working career I have empowered, educated, and supported families, individuals and children to be the best version of themselves in their every day relationships.

My own journey of self-discovery and personal growth led me to study eastern spirituality, mindfulness, consciousness, interconnectedness and the deep existential questions of “ who am I?” and “ why am I here?”

My counselling approach is trauma-sensitive, attachment-based, experiential and draws upon theories that are solution focused.

I create a nonjudgmental, confidential space where you feel safe to explore, understand, and experience parts of yourself that need healing.

My therapeutic approach is a gentle exploration of your thought and belief patterns combined with sensory-motor processing based on your body's innate intelligence and mindfulness.

I aim to provide a unique-to-you experience, supporting you gently to move towards the future that you want.


My couples counselling is based on the Gottman Institute assessment and sound relationship house model. We will identify the strengths and weaknesses of your relationship and use research based interventions focused specifically on your situation and the area you need improvement to create your ideal relationship.


Whether you are seeking to improve the quality of your life, find your life purpose or make sense of experiences you’ve had, I invite you to book a 15 minute free session to explore if I feel like the right fit for you on your journey.
