Biography

Tēnā koutou katoa. Ko tauiwi au, nō Aerani ahau. I prioritise presence and authentic connection - using dynamic, adaptable, and client-led therapy methods. I trust participant expertise in their own experience, to know what approaches work best for them, using creative problem solving without requiring artistic 'skill'. I have a special interest in social equity issues: particularly gender, sexuality and neuro-diversity. I have extensive experience working with diverse populations both 1:1 and in groups as an educator and more recently as a therapist. All enquiries are welcome. Kia kaha! My experiences include: 2017-2019 Art Therapy Private Practice with children, youth and adults. 2018-2019 Specialty Art Therapist for sex-workers. 2008-2016 Community Development and Social Circus facilitator with specialty populations including: Children with spectrum disorder & in foster-care, Youth 'at risk' & with development or learning challenges, women who have experience sexual abuse, Integrated abilities, and the elderly.
