I have had two rewarding careers, initially as an Information Technology Professional in the Health Sector, and then in the Social Services field as a Counsellor, Supervisor, and Manager. My career change came about due to life experiences and a wish to assist people on a more personal level.

I work in partnership with clients, creating a safe and supportive counselling relationship to assist them in achieving the outcomes they seek.
I am integrative in the use of Counselling modalities, matching proven theoretical approaches with the client’s unique needs.
