I trained as a therapist/clinician and Social Worker in South Africa and immigrated to New Zealand in 2001. I have since assisted individuals and families in a variety of settings such as paediatric, medical, surgical and for the last 19 years in a Mental Health and Addictions Service. I have also been providing supervision for the past 12 years.

My approach to therapy is evidence-based and includes modalities such as Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, Narrative Therapy, Rational Emotive Behavioural Therapy and Systemic Therapy.

I am a client and solution focused professional and counsellor, committed and adaptable in providing support to a diverse range of clients.
