I am a counsellor, Gestalt therapist and accredited social worker originally from Melbourne, Australia. I am located on the western side of Tokyo. I provide counselling and psychotherapy to adult and adolescent clients dealing with a variety of life challenges – particularly anxiety, depression, grief, bereavement, relationship difficulties, addiction (eg. alcohol) and coping with physical illness or disability.

I strive to create an accepting and non-judgemental space for all clients, and my therapeutic practice is trauma-informed and shame-sensitive. It is informed primarily by Relational Gestalt, psychodynamic and systems approaches, but also draws on Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT). I have worked extensively with individuals and families around the psychosocial, psychological and relational dimensions of living with chronic or life-limiting illness, especially in cancer care, palliative care, gastroenterology, neurology and Addiction Medicine.

I am registered with the Psychotherapy and Counselling Federation of Australia (PACFA) and a member of the Australian Association of Social Workers (AASW).
