I identify as tau iwi, she/her and live with my male partner.  Together we have a blended family whanau caring for 11 grandchildren, being part of their lives is very important to us.

My passion is to be both personally and professionally a useful part of change in people’s lives, specifically to be part of communities that are working on making relationships safe loving places

With 30years of experience in the community and mental health sector I bring a wide knowledge and set of skills to assist people to engage in the therapeutic process offered. These approaches include: Imago Relationship Therapy, Family Work, Sandplay Therapy, Interactive Drawing Therapy, CBT and DBT approaches, Trauma Informed Care, Feminist approaches and Narrative Therapy. Collaborations with community are vital to ensure people can link to services I do not provide.
