I am a counsellor and family therapist and have been in private practice in Orewa and Warkworth for the past 23 years. I am particularly passionate about working with the challenges relationship brings. I work collaboratively with couples who want to make their relationships more connected by achieving goals which help create the desired changes. I help them discover new ways of communicating and relating to each other, develop a deeper awareness of themselves and their partner, and support their growth both individually and together. I provide a safe and reflective environment for couples to share their vulnerabilities and hurts so they can deepen their trust and intimacy on every level and therefore build stronger more fulfilling relationships. I work with a combination of approaches including the developmental model of Bader Pearson Couple Therapy and I also draw on the Gottman method and Emotionally Focused Therapy to assist my clients and my practise.
