“A journey of thousand miles begins with one step.”
My path to providing therapy came via a winding road, the path often times a forked one. But for those who seek – what path is a smooth one or an easy ride? For me, psychotherapy provides an invaluable space to receive support and importantly to grow and expand ourselves as human beings. To know ourselves, to look at our biases, our habitual ways of organising ourselves in the world, to take responsibility for what is ours, to learn to throw away what is not, to heal and honour our deep woundings: to face these requires the spirit of an adventurer, a courageous soul longing for something beyond the everyday, or simply, one who has lost hope in the possibilities in anything but what they experiencing.
I consider myself lucky to have found a passion in psychotherapy, and an endless curiosity for learning. I bring this to you.
Since 2001 I have had many years of experience in community and non-for-profit sectors and I am an experienced psychotherapist who has provided counselling and psychotherapy to people from diverse age groups and cultural backgrounds. My work specialty includes working with trauma, Complex PTSD, anxiety, depression, addiction and working extensively with carers of people with dementia.
Alongside my Graduate Diploma and Masters in Counselling I have completed my Advanced Clinical Training in Relational Gestalt Psychotherapy, and are a current student of Somatic Experiencing and have completed extensive professional development and training in the fields of attachment, self-object relations, gestalt therapy and others.
I have been a Clinical member of PACFA (Psychotherapy and Counselling Federation of Australia) for many years. I am a Clinical member of PACFAs Psychotherapy College and a former member of PACFAs Leadership Team for Gestalt Psychotherapy.
I am a former Council Member of GANZ (Gestalt Australia and New Zealand) and former editor of the GANZ newsletter.
I am a former Board member of The Wellspring Warburton.
Practice locations: Warburton, Telehealth.
