For me, the mountains are a reminder of the path that led to me where I am today, there were many ups and downs and many times I just wanted to give up- but my determination and inner strength helped me to keep going. 

 

I am an accredited practising dietitian and registered counsellor with over 20 years of experience. I also have a lived experience with an eating disorder. I specialise in working with children and adolescents with eating disorders (this includes Anorexia Nervosa; Bulimia Nervosa; Binge Eating Disorder; Avoidant Restrictive Eating Disorders (ARFID) & Atypical Anorexia Nervosa (ANN); disordered eating, and body image issues.

I am extremely passionate about working with parents and provide counselling to assist them to work through and help navigate the complexities of living with a young person with an eating disorder. 

 

I also work with adolescents and children to assist them with anxiety, depression, trauma as well as any other issues that may impact their mental health and wellbeing. 

 

My counselling style is warm and gentle- I like to work closely with the whole family to to provide a safe and supportive space. I use a variety

of evidence-based treatments including family therapy; individual therapy;

mindfulness; motivational interviewing; adolescent-focused therapy and

emotion-focused therapy.
