About me

A long term resident of the Bayside area, I have been working with local adults, adolescents, and children since 2001.

I am a Psychodynamic Psychotherapist which means I will help you to develop a deeper understanding of yourself and what factors are involved in creating your current situation. A great emphasis is placed on building a good therapeutic relationship and it is very important to me that you feel understood, validated and not judged.

I am fully registered as a Medicare Provider and have worked with many clients who are on a Mental Health Care Plan with their GP. Clients may receive rebates from their Private Health Insurance provider (please contact your provider to confirm relevant cover).

I am also happy to work with clients covered by TAC, Workcover and Victims of Crime.
