Throughout her career within the non-government sector, this Hart Psychologist has worked with families, couples, individuals, parents, teens and children. She has worked with clients through all of the stages of the family life cycle: dating, partnering and marriage, separation or divorce, re-partnering, parenting children within two homes, and blended families.
With her openness to the developmental transitions within families, she brings rich insight and collaboration to the emergence of new meanings for couples and assists them in the creation of a rich, full and meaningful lived experience. Her philosophical stance reflects an exposure to a wide range of approaches, and this is used to create a non-judgemental, open and accepting space within the counselling environment.
She understands that many couples who come into counselling are discouraged about the direction their relationships have taken, feeling hopeless about making changes. They can be accusatory and blaming towards their partner for the state of their relationship, resulting in increased defensiveness on the part of each partner.
This Hart Psychologist’s commitment to the couple relationship, is paramount in assisting the couple to see their dilemma as an opportunity to develop new alternatives in their relationship, which allow them to stop struggling, reconcile their differences and enhance their relationship.
She is available face-to-face and for phone and Skype appointments.
