Please describe yourself in 20 words or less.

A born traveller with a passion for art making, exploring and understanding people.

What is a hobby you love to do in your spare time?

I love life-drawing.

Why did you choose this career path?

I learned the value of going on a mental health journey through my own experience of seeing a therapist and felt inspired to provide the same support to others.

Tell me about one experience which has kept you doing what you’re doing.

Seeing the rewards that my clients experience that come from therapeutic work. It takes guts to challenge yourself to say no, express your emotions or change your relationships and I'm impressed every single time a client takes the opportunity to do it.

What is one piece of general advice that you would give to a client starting out their mental health journey?

Take the time to find the therapist that is right for you. All therapists are different and the quality of the relationship you build can contribute greatly to the success you have.

If you weren’t doing what you were doing, what career would you have pursued?

I would have loved to pursued life as a life-drawing teacher.

What is one item in your fridge that would surprise us?

A bottle of EXTRA hot sauce.

Is there anything about you that you would like clients who are reading to know?

I specialize in working with people from the LGBTQIA+, polyamorous, sex work and neurodiverse communities.
