About therapy with me
I will meet you with warmth, curiosity and acceptance. I come from the perspective that as humans we all have things we struggle with and I believe through experience that it can help to have support with these difficulties.

I offer psychodynamic therapy and integrate this with mindfulness and somatic (body-based) practices where appropriate. Psychodynamic therapy is particularly helpful for people who want to feel better as well as understand themselves more deeply and experience lasting change.

The following article provides additional information about psychodynamic therapy and its effectiveness:

My training & background
I’m a registered Clinical Psychologist and member of the Australian Psychological Society. I studied a Masters of Clinical Psychology and Bachelor of Behavioural Science (Psychology) with Honours at Queensland University of Technology. I’m currently completing a 3 year training in Hakomi Experiential Psychotherapy, a somatic and mindfulness based therapy. I practice meditation and attend regular retreats in the Buddhist tradition. Before psychology, I began my studies with a Science/Arts degree with Honours at University of Queensland majoring in Russian, English, and Zoology.
