I am a Pakeha New Zealander, Mother and Partner.  Since 2005 I have been working in the mental health, addictions and counselling fields, following a career in the business world.

My specialty areas are drug, alcohol and other addictions, couples therapy, trauma and abuse, anxiety, depression, relationship concerns, men’s issues, grief and loss, medical/health issues, workplace issues and work/life balance.

I use a strengths-based, holistic approach incorporating aspects of narrative therapy, CBT, ACT, motivational interviewing and solution-focused therapy to help people bring about change in their lives and maintain that change. I am trained in Emotional Freedom Techniques (Tapping) and Brain Working Recursive Therapy® (BWRT®).
