Registered Psychotherapist (Qualifying)
I've always found art making soothing.
As a child I could become enthralled in creativity for hours, not knowing at the time that what I was experiencing was a flow state.
In the art therapy world, flow describes a psychological state of optimal attention and engagement. In the flow state, a person experiences a great amount of focus on the present moment.
Grounding in the present has helped me feel clear headed and able to move through life's challenges. I became a psychotherapist because I want to introduce others to that state of feeling capable and strong too.
I’m passionate about supporting people by facilitating self-exploration and assurance. One of the ways I do this is through art therapy where I provide a supportive space for you to create something external that speaks to your internal experience. We do this through talking, art making and metaphor. This allows you to process and gain new perspectives in order to move forward in a way that feels right for you.
I provide talk-based psychotherapy too! I offer a warm, empathic, non-judgmental safe place for you to work through whatever it is you're facing.

I have experience working with individuals and groups with varying needs and abilities.
This includes working with adult survivors of abuse and trauma, older adults with neurodegenerative disorders, people experiencing mental illnesses in an inpatient hospital setting and neurodivergent folks. I've provided therapy for people experiencing anxiety, grief and loss, burnout, depression, feelings of isolation and identity concerns during life changes.
When I'm not being a therapist, you'll find me being a cat, rabbit and dog mum, painting, and planning my next hike or camping trip. I recharge in the outdoors but when I'm indoors, I'm often scrolling through Netflix or my podcast app looking for a good true crime story.
