My Story

Working with people has always been the focus and passion of my career. Since the beginning I have worked with individuals from all walks of life, and I find myself inspired by each and every one.

My professional roles, such as Senior Youth Worker gave me hands on experience which provided an understanding of the negative coping mechanisms teenagers, families, and adults often adopt. My goal is to then turn these into a voice that interprets their perceptions of reality. I use a therapeutic approach that is supportive, collaborative, relationship-focused and most importantly person-centred. 
From a personal perspective, my own experiences have shaped my passion to help others overcome trauma and challenges. Having removed myself from an emotionally challenging situation and faced the fear of creating a life as a single parent, I know very well the sense of helplessness one can experience. I also know that with the right tools, motivation, and guidance there is always a way to create the life and relationships we all desire.
I believe that life is often challenging and sometimes tough, but it’s also a wonderful adventure full of opportunities and breathtaking beauty. I would love to help you find a path to peace and beauty in your own world.

When I’m not working, I enjoy being outdoors at the beach, walking along the amazing coastal pathways of the Sunshine Coast and camping with the family.
