I approach therapy in a collaborative, curious and open-minded way, with the aim of individualistically helping clients meet their needs and work towards their goals. I like to see humans as fundamentally equal yet different, and appreciate the phenomenal diversity of each person’s experiences. The variation in each individual’s makeup and experiences, allows for equally unique complications and ways of suffering. I am less interested in telling people how to live and more interested in helping people understand how they live – which can naturally reveal their path forward. Additionally, people can find their nervous system repeatedly stuck in disturbing emotional states. I recognise the worthiness of targeting this with a body-mind approach, in order to find new states for the nervous system to call home. With this understanding, approach and some practical skills to match – I feel we can make room for more valued parts of our-self to come forward.

I have clinical experience across community, social service, hospital, and private practice settings. My approach includes ideas and resources from Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Schema Therapy, Somatic Experiencing (SE) and Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing (EMDR). I’m trained in the use of EMDR itself, which has considerable support for its effectiveness with trauma and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). The above allows me to prioritise a person-centred approach to therapy.

I completed a Bachelor of Psychology (Honours) at the University of Wollongong and a Master of Clinical Psychology at the University of Technology Sydney. I hold Registration as a Clinical Psychologist with the Australian Health Practitioner Registration Agency (AHPRA).
