My Story

I’m a dedicated and compassionate counsellor/therapist working at Exclusive Wellbeing in the heart of Parramatta. My practice is centered around the core values of integrity, authenticity, compassion, connection, growth & development, and appreciation of individualisation.

With a rich tapestry of life experiences, including parenthood, a corporate career, and years of teaching yoga, I bring a holistic approach to therapy. My goal is to understand and support you on your unique journey, empowering you to overcome challenges and embrace a more fulfilling life.

I find joy in working with clients facing various struggles, such as anxiety, depression, trauma, self-esteem, career/work issues, parenting difficulties, and relationship concerns. A special area of interest lies in counselling women navigating fertility, pregnancy, birth trauma, and the transition to motherhood. Additionally, I extend my support to men experiencing similar issues, including fertility concerns and vicarious birth trauma.

In the sacred space of therapy, I strive to truly see and hear you, celebrating your triumphs and standing beside you during the toughest moments. I believe that building a trusting, empathetic relationship is the foundation of profound and lasting healing. Together, we embark on a journey of exploration to uncover the root causes of your pain, while respecting your unique identity and innate potential for growth.

With a strong belief in the power of mindfulness and emotional awareness, I champion a wholistic approach that encompasses body, mind, and soul. The therapy I practice is client-led, and my background in yoga therapy enriches my understanding of mental health and physical responses.

Using an integrated approach, I draw from various modalities tailored to your needs. Person-Centered Therapy (PCT) forms the bedrock of my work, complemented by Gestalt Therapy to explore your somatic experience and the present moment. I also incorporate elements of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Narrative Therapy, and trauma-informed approaches, along with mindfulness and breathing techniques.

My journey as a therapist began with a Bachelor of Psychology (Honours) from Skidmore College in New York, USA, in 2006. I furthered my studies and practice in Australia, completing a Masters of Counselling and Applied Psychotherapy at Jansen Newman Institute and a Post Grad Advanced Clinical Training in Gestalt Therapy at The Relational Institute (TRIA).

In addition to my qualifications as a counsellor, I hold a 500-hour registered yoga teacher (RYT) certification and am a registered yoga therapist with the Australian Association of Yoga Therapists (AAYT).

I am a certified practicing counsellor, provisional registrant, with the Psychotherapy and Counselling Federation of Australia (PACFA), working towards clinical membership. While counselling and psychotherapy are privately funded, some Private Health Funds may provide subsidisation based on your cover level. Please check with your provider.

You can find me at Exclusive Wellbeing in Parramatta, available for bookings on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays from 9 am to 5 pm.
