With twenty-six years experience as a psychotherapist and counsellor, I offer a broad range of psychotherapeutic counselling strategies and skills sets for my clients needs. I have over the years provided successful outcomes for my clients. I have a non-judgemental approach towards my clients presenting situations, and I am an empathetic and patient with my client's intervention. I have worked successfully establishing a credible reputation as a psychotherapist and counsellor at all levels of psychotherapeutic counselling. This I have achieved Nationally; including leading Australian hospitals, also at rural country district Hospitals, and, also at the higher end suburbs of Sydney, NSW. This I have achieved at both governmental and non governmental fields of practice. I now have opened my private practice at 'home' where I grew up, in the much loved Gold Coast areas. My practice is located in Bundall.

Counsellor/Therapist, Psychotherapist, PACFA; Psychosexual Therapist
As a clinical psychotherapist and registered psychosexual therapist, I specialise in helping individuals with trauma and PTSD, self-esteem issues, relationship issues, and sexual difficulties, including intimacy and trust. I am also passionate about providing support for navigating gendered, sexual, racial, neurodiversity, and cultural identities, who may experience discrimination or internalised stigma. Centering unconditional positive regard, I work closely with the client to deeply explore how their past experiences, current situations, family background, and social elements of their lives have impacted their wellbeing. I then work together with the client to explore how they navigate life within their social and environmental surroundings, as well as how to establish an environment and support system that is conducive to growth and healthy self-esteem. As a therapist, I deeply value sex positivity, social justice and removing the stigma and social constraints surrounding mental health work. I also aim to move away from binary and the pathologisation of queerness and neurodiversity, and provide dedicated support for people who feel they fall outside of the margins of the dominant societal group. Peer support towards queerness and neurodiversity is an important therapeutic element that I provide - living actively in the queer community and with neurodiversity myself, I am able to genuinely connect with others who may identify with similar experiences. I work from a trauma-informed, ecological-environmental and systemic framework to support survivors to thrive and enjoy healthy relationships. I am respectful and accepting of all forms of self-expression and diverse identities. In this way, my goal is to nurture self-compassion and to empower clients to make a sustainable positive impact on their wellbeing.
