About me

Accredited Mental Health Social Worker/Counsellor I am an accredited mental health social worker and counsellor who has worked in the areas of pro choice pregnancy options and abortion counselling, maternal mental health, sexual assault counselling as well in as generalist/Employment Assistance Program Counselling for over 20 years. ​ In my counselling practice, I use strengths-based frameworks including narrative and solution-focussed therapies as well as feminist counselling models and the social model of health which link the individual's experience to wider socio-political context. I also draws upon the intersections of Buddhist psychology and somatic experiencing, particularly in relation to trauma and grief work. My employment history includes Pregnancy Advisory Service at Royal Women’s Hospital, Marie Stope Counselling Coordinator, CASA House and the Sexual Assault Crisis Line

How we’ll connect

What to expect

I will work with you to explore your thoughts, feelings, options in relation to an unintended pregnancy or in relation to an abortion decision or post-abortion. Warmth, compassion and curiosity are my super powers as well as evidence based practice. I am proudly pro choice which means I support all options for you to choose, including abortion
