If you are struggling to cope with life’s stressors, feeling overwhelmed or stagnant. I can help you overcome any challenges, find better ways to cope and help you work towards a life of fulfilment. My hope is to increase a persons’ understanding, self-efficacy and confidence in their own abilities.
People seek therapy for a variety of reasons and during different seasons of one’s life. My aim is to provide a safe and healing space to work through life’s difficulties from past, to present experiences or future anticipations. I take a holistic, compassionate, non-judgmental and collaborative approach to working with my clients. I specialize in psychological assessments, brief and long terms psychotherapy.
I am a registered Clinical Psychologist with experience working with people of all different ages and cultural backgrounds. I currently work in public mental health within a Māori Adult Mental Health setting, and a within a Regional Youth Forensic team, providing psychological services within community and residential settings.
Prior to this I worked as a youth worker within NGO and the state sector for 12 plus years, providing behavioural and social skills interventions to adolescent and their whānau.
