An enthusiastic member of Tauranga moana, I am married with five adult children. As a psychologist, I have a passion to help individuals, couples and families find solutions for emotional, behavioural and relationship problems. In my earlier employment, I worked for the Department of Corrections and more recently in mental health and addictions with the Salvation Army Bridge.
Much of my work has been with people who have experienced traumatic events and on-going distress. Often they are left anxious, depressed, angry and struggling. Relationships suffer. Compulsive habits can develop. Feeling stuck, help is needed to find a way forward.
With a warm and welcoming approach, I quickly put people at ease and enjoy working with people of diverse backgrounds and beliefs.
