I have experience working with a wide range of people who have found arts therapy useful for self-development, managing anxiety, depression, emotion regulation, interpersonal struggles, working through traumatic experiences and navigating grief, loss and change. Most recently I worked within a CCDHB mental health and forensic inpatient unit, providing individual and group arts therapy to individuals within the service. I have also spent almost four years supporting survivors of sexual violence. This area remains a strong interest of mine, particularly helping people to re-establish a sense of safety in their body through arts practices. I am an accredited provider for ACC sensitive claims.

My clients and I work creatively, using mindfulness-based approaches and a variety of arts modalities (including visual arts, dance/movement, drama and writing) to support the processes of meaning-making and change.

I offer individual therapy sessions and community-based arts therapy groups for adults and adolescents, from my private practice in central Wellington.
Special considerations
Please note, I will be on maternity leave from August 2019 until February 2020 and unable to accept new referrals during this time. I welcome enquiries from prospective clients from early 2020.
