I am a counselor committed to working collaboratively with people to reach new understandings and generate new possibilities. I work with young people and adults with a variety of issues including: relationships, grief, identity, and life changes. My early counselling experience was as a school counselor and I have been in private practice since 2002.
I am a NZ trained Clinical Psychologist who has over 25 years of experience. I enjoy working collaboratively developing goals for therapy and new ways of working towards these appreciating the unique history of experiences and skills that each person brings.
My areas of special interest include emotional and sexual intimacy, couple relationship concerns, anxiety,depression, trauma, grief work and sport psychology.

I have been a New Zealand registered clinical psychologist since 1992 and I specialize in Women’s Health. I completed a PhD in 2010 on young women’s wellbeing both within and outside of being a girlfriend and updated my skills in general mental health and drug and alcohol addiction in 2012. More recently I have been increasingly recognizing the impact of unhealthy workplace politics on both men and women’s mental and physical health and the difficulty of balancing both paid and unpaid workloads. I am available for supervising colleagues and other health professionals.
