Bachelor of Psychology, University of Sydney Masters of Applied Psychotherapy

The decision to change, to allow myself to believe someone could help me was life changing. My psychotherapy journey has been the most valuable and transforming experience for me. What I learnt has turned into my life work, I now support others to find their voice and create meaningful change in their life just as I did. I love what I do and I consider being let into my client’s world a profound privilege. I have a passion for helping people. I have helped countless people suffering from eating disorders or other addictions. I also work in several private organisations where I specialise in treating addictions and providing support for families of those in recovery.
