I’m a registered psychologist, a full member of the New Zealand Psychological Society, and an accredited service provider for ACC. I’m trained in EMDR (eye movement desensitisation and reprocessing) therapy, cognitive behavioural therapy, solution focused therapy and emotionally focused therapy.

I specialise in helping people to process and recover from traumatic events in their lives. I also specalise in:

  • assessing autism in adults and youth, and
  • working with autistic individuals to help them navigate their way in a neurotypical world.

I help them to interpret and deal with issues when they arise, with a view to promoting success in everyday environments such as school, work, and relationships.

I also have 11 years experience working with families with parenting and child behaviour.
