I am a clinical social worker, based in Essendon Melbourne, offering therapy and support to girls and women.

I'm passionately dedicated to working with people who identify as female. As a trained trauma informed therapist, I ensure a safe and collaborative counselling space that engenders trust, choice and empowerment. A place where you can work through difficult issues, gain new life skills and be free to live a conscious and meaningful life.

I understand, as women, we experience unique challenges related to gender, like - discrimination, sexual assault and abuse, domestic violence, caregiving stress and hormonal life transitions. And, that these life experiences can have a significant impact on your mental health and wellbeing. Given the right environment and opportunities, we can all live a rich and meaningful life.
