I work within a flexible yet strengths-based, and research-supported framework. I have experience working with adolescents and adults across many presenting issues.

How can I possibly convey that I am the right fit for you as a counselor? It’s a lot to ask from a few words. Reading a profile like this can’t feasibly tell you everything you need to know about me, or the kind of person I am – let alone how I am as a counselor.
Yes, I have the qualifications, the passion and drive to do this work – I’m sure we all do – it’s not the line of work to be in if you don’t!

Let’s try something a little different
Things about me:
• I’m from New Zealand! I’ve been here with my family for nearly 3 years (I’m told my accent is charming and not difficult to understand!)
• I grew up on a 35,000 acre sheep, beef and crop station – country girl at heart.
• I am also an artist – I paint to bring myself calm (when I get a chance – and when I need it!)
• I adore ALL the animals. Right now, I have a pet bunny who free-ranges in our backyard
• I read almost constantly. Anything and everything.
• Like almost everyone in these parts I love to hike, camp and explore

What I can say about my professional self is that I will listen wholeheartedly, and that I am flexible and adaptable to differing needs. Drawing from several person-centered, evidence-based counseling theories, we will create a relationship that is tailored to you as an individual and most importantly as a human! I don’t believe in a one-size fits-all approach.

If you and I work together, our relationship will be as unique as every individual person is. We may laugh, we may cry, we will definitely work hard, and we will work towards the outcomes that YOU want out of this. Counseling is meant to serve you, not to create a dependency on therapy.

Qualified in sport science and fine arts, I can include movement, art and play into therapy as well. I believe in my continued development of cultural humility and I am LGBTQIA+ affirming. I have worked with individuals and groups in my homeland of New Zealand, Australia, and the US and have over 20 years collective experience working closely with teens and adults, including over a decade of teaching experience before moving into mental health. With warmth, creativity, and a wide range of experiences I can help you to decide what it is you’re aiming for and how you’re going to get there.
I have experience and an interest in counseling those struggling with life transitions such as leaving home or changing relationships, parenting, loss and grief, anxiety and depression, and acute and chronic trauma
