Ko Inarangi, ko Kōtirana, Ko Tiamani ngā whenua o ōku tīpuna. I whānau mai ahau ki Te Awakairangi, ki Aotearoa. Kei Porirua ahau e noho ana, kei Porirua ahau e mahi ana.

My ancestors are from English, Scottish and German descent. I was born here in New Zealand in Lower Hutt, and I now live and work in Porirua.

I have trained and worked as a Hosptial Social Worker and then as a Counsellor, so I bring both these perspectives into my work. I have worked as a counsellor in community agencies as well as in my own private practice, the latter since 1998 both in Palmerston North and in Porirua.

I use various modalities including Person Centred, SFBT, CBT, IDT and ACT as well as creative & practical interventions when working with youth.
