About

I wake people up to their true selves.

I am devoted to healing and awakening the human spirit. My own degree of healing and awakening has come through deep relationships to myself, others and Spirit.

I believe that therapy offers a unique opportunity for gaining a deeper understanding of your current situation or difficulties by reflecting on who you are, your relationships, your life history and experiences. I approach therapy from a holistic perspective that encompasses the intellectual, emotional, physical and spiritual aspects of your well-being, and work wholly in the present and deal with the past as needed in order to facilitate insight and growth.

My belief is that we have everything we need inside ourselves. I have seen incredible fathering come from a childhood of horrible fathering, beautiful compassion come from a childhood of no compassion. How is it we can have such abilities when we didn’t receive them ourselves? I believe all the gifts of being human remain untainted somewhere in our depths. I am committed to helping you uncover your gifts, to find the spark within you and bring it to life again.

My interventions are always collaborative and client-specific and I help you find what works best for you. I’m creative and intuitive, warm and empathic while also being direct and honest. My 20+ years as a counsellor, combined with my training, personal experience and business background, give me the ability to help you release, heal, and create the life you want and deserve.

I have had face-to-face practices in Seattle, USA and Vancouver, Canada; and for the past six years in Melbourne, Australia. During this time, technology opened the door to a successful online practice using Skype, providing me with an international online client base.

In March 2015 I relocated to Hobart, Tasmania where I continue to see clients face-to-face and over Skype. I also fly back to Melbourne at the end of every month to see clients in person. Please see my calendar for details.
