About Me


Prior to becoming a counsellor I worked in the banking, legal and music industries in various positions from administration, sales, marketing to managerial.


My change to counselling came from a desire to more personally help others with the struggles life throws at us that negatively impact our well being.


I have attended Auckland University, Bay of Plenty Polytechnic and WINTEC for my tertiary education


I have lived in many places. Upon arriving in the beautiful Bay of Plenty 27 years ago I fell in love with the area and made Tauranga Moana home base to raise a family.





I am experienced in:

  • Family Therapy
  • Functional Family Therapy
  • Cognitive Behavioural Therapy
  • Dialectic Behavioural Therapy
  • Solution Focused Therapy
  • Mediation
  • Coaching
  • Group Facilitation


I work with individuals, couples, rangitahi/youth and whanau/families. I have specific experience with adults, families/whanau and children/adolescents where mental health affectations result in behavioural and emotional problems that fracture relationships.  Also traumatic experiences which continue to encroach on day to day living.


I provide counselling services for a wide range of issues. Including:

  • Adults
  • Adolescents
  • Relationships
  • Family
  • Mediation
  • Grandparents raising Grandchildren
  • Caregivers raising children
  • Domestic Violence
  • Grief and loss
  • Trauma
  • Post Traumatic Stress Trauma
  • Complex Trauma
  • Emotional regulation
  • Self harm & Suicidal Ideation
  • Anxiety& Depression
  • Stress
  • Self Esteem
  • Addictions


My focus is to help clients to understand what is affecting them and assist them to take back control and mastery of their lives with a view to enhancing relationships and day to day living.



Ongoing Professional Development and Supervision


I attend regular external supervision including peer and cultural supervision.

I also regularly attend various trainings and workshops / seminars to keep informed and broaden my counselling insight and practice.
