I am the Founder of Creative Kids Therapy - I am a Counsellor, Creative Arts Therapist, Group Facilitator and Mum of two wonderful kids. I live in the beautiful Dandenong ranges of Melbourne with my husband and young family.
As a parent there have been many times where I have wandered if I am doing things right and asked myself and others many questions on the different stages that come with having kids and being a parent. I do know that there can be challenges and frustrations and that will continue but ultimately I love and am continually fascinated watching my kids grow and learn.
I’ve had a long working history in Melbourne’s Community Sector focusing predominately in the areas of homelessness and family violence. I have used my counselling and group skills in a diverse range of roles such as – youth work, mental health outreach, drug and alcohol counselling and family support work.
I have also spent an extensive period as a Child and Adolescent Therapist and as a School Counsellor. I have a huge passion for the needs and voices of children’s experiences.
I believe children just like adults can experience stress in their lives where they need the opportunity to have support and share their story. Through my practice I have specialised in working with families, with a particular focus on kids and teens. I am inspired in the work I do and love to companion individuals as they recognise strengths, gain insight and share in their knowledge.
I love the outdoors, camping, snowboarding, running, also play netball and coach my daughters team. I love good food and wine, music and regularly meditate, do tapping and love having a good laugh.
