Biography

Like the lotus flower growing from muddy waters untainted to bloom towards the sun, it is possible to overcome and develop from difficult experiences we go through in life. Working together we can utilize your adversity and strengths as a foundation to create changes you choose and build the life you desire to lead. As a New Zealand registered psychologist, I have supported individuals to cope with a wide range of presenting difficulties including mental distress, addiction, physical ailments, workplace and relationship difficulties, family and sexual harm, and other adjustment and stress effects. I believe in person-centred care and work in collaboration with my clients to support and maintain wellness which include increasing symptom management, reducing disability and distress, addressing underlying difficulties, maximizing self-care, developing coping skills, strengthening protective factors, and improving quality of life. In the context of the current pandemic, I hope to increase public access to timely psychological input through the use of teletherapy. I acknowledge the need to identify therapy targets quickly to alleviate distress and the importance of the therapeutic relationship built on understanding, warmth, and trust. Prior to confirming a first appointment, we can speak over the phone to discuss what you hope to gain from our sessions and if you would feel comfortable to work with me. I can also make recommendations for the type of therapeutic support most suited to your needs. Notification: I am taking three weeks leave commencing April 11th until April 30th and will not be accepting appointments during this time.
