PERSONAL DETAILS AND INTERESTS (03) 9820 5577
I am a warm and caring therapist who has worked with individuals and couples for over 20 years. I work collaboratively with people to identify the issues causing them distress and then I create an individually tailored therapeutic intervention to help people move towards the life they want.
My practice draws on the best of a range of therapeutic approaches including client -centred practice, emotion -focused therapy, acceptance and commitment therapy, mindfulness, and cognitive behavioural therapy.
I believe that all people can change and grow.
