Christchurch : Tuesday - 10am - 6pm Rangiora : Wednesday & Thursday - 10am - 3pm


I have over 30 years experience of working with adults, couples and youth with special interests and experience in eating problems, trauma, Alcohol and Drug Service and community Mental Health.

I studied social work in Germany and came to New Zealand in 1982. All my employment has been in a counselling capacity. After leaving work in the mental health sector I started private practice in 1993.  Since 2018 I have been practicing at Otakana in Christchurch. I also hold a clinic in the rural sector in North Canterbury.  I provide supervision to other social workers, counsellors, mental health professionals and people working in community settings.
