Experience: I have experience working with a wide range of problems, issues and diagnoses, including all aspects of relationship difficulties, interpersonal struggles, grief and loss, depression, post/pre-natal depression, anger management, anxiety and trauma. Also for the past five years I have developed and run a successful Dialectical Behavioural Therapy Skills group in a variety of community based facilities.

Specialty: I specialise in working with people to develop a strong sense of self and understanding any recurrent negative patterns, which get in the way of living a full and successful life. These include, but are not limited to, anxiety, stress, family dynamics, post/pre-natal depression, trauma, sexual-abuse and anger management.

Approach: My approach is interpersonal psychotherapy with some interpretive qualities. This involves working together to develop a strong working relationship that can encourage the onset of new growth and learning. Currently, I am offering individual psychotherapy, couples, and individual anger management therapy.

I am also offering individual, couple, family and group therapy using Equine Assisted Psychotherapy (EAP). EAP is a form of therapy that uses interactions with horses to encourage emotional growth and learning. This means that clients learn about themselves and others by participating in activities with the horses and then process their thoughts, beliefs, behaviours and patterns. This approach is based on the idea that clients have their own answers and that they have the ability to overcome their struggles and find healthier solutions when encouraged and given the opportunity. Equine Psychotherapy is a collaborative therapy, where the client, a therapist and a horse all work together. See separate page for more details.

Fees: Individual therapy is $150.00 per 50 min appointment, Couple/marriage therapy is $220.00 per 80 min appointment.

Hours:  Monday-Thursday, 8:30am – 8:00pm, Fridays 8.30am - 3:00pm.
