I am a Counselling Psychologist, with over 20 years’ experience providing psychological and psychotherapeutic services within Perth, Western Australia. I have worked with individuals and groups, in clinical, forensic and private practice settings. My experience includes lecturing in the Psychology Master’s Program at Curtin University, training/workshop facilitation, consultation, supervision, and therapeutic program development, evaluation and implementation. This diverse background has cultivated flexibility, adaptability and exceptional open-mindedness, enabling me to work with a broad range of concerns, particularly those involving shame.
I offer psychological services that are diverse and adapted to meet specific individual or organisational needs and are limited only by my own creativity. As a psychotherapist, I provides short-term goal-oriented interventions, or long-term transformative psychotherapy, to individuals, couples, and families. I have extensive experience in addiction, traumatic stress, developmental trauma, emotional dysregulation, ADHD, eating disorders and relationship issues. I have established competency working with complex chronic concerns often regarded as “treatment resistant” or “unmotivated”. I have an innate belief that everyone has the ability to benefit from and transform through meaningful interactive therapy, determination, perseverance, creativity, courage and a strong therapeutic relationship.
My approach is an integrative on that is uniquely tailored to the expressed needs of her clients. As an integrative therapist, I recognise the inherent value in complexity, diversity, experience and the unique interrelationships between the mind, body, society and environment. My approach is an amalgam of traditional best practice, neuroscience and neuropsychotherapeutic approaches. Honouring complexity and integrative practice is inherently challenging. In response, I consciously, deliberately and continuously cultivates her practice through reading, researching, training, consultation, supervision, personal psychotherapy, and most importantly her clients.
