I was born and raised in Northland. After living in the Waikato and Auckland regions during parts of my training, I returned to Northland in 2007.
I have worked in the mental health and rehabilitation field since 1998. I have also been involved with a range of charity events and have been a voluntary youth leader for over 20 years.
I provide psychological assessment, diagnosis and evidence-based treatment for a variety of mental health and emotional difficulties, including:
* Loss and Grief
* Childhood Behavioural Problems
I am also able to provide clinical/professional supervision.
I trained primarily in cognitive-behavioural therapy and I also have an interest in using schema therapy, mindfulness, dialectical-behavioural therapy approaches and motivational interviewing. I am also trained in Sand Tray therapy and Brick therapy. In 2022, I am training in EMDR and will be able to offer this to some clients.
I enjoy working with people of all age groups; however I have a particular passion for working with youth/young people and emergency services personnel.
I regularly attend my own supervision and maintain on-going personal and professional development.
