A little about me;

I was born in Taranaki and grew up in the Eastern BOP and Tauranga Moana, leaving here to train first as a primary teacher and later as a psychologist. I returned to Tauranga when my children were young to be near family. I have been a Registered Psychologist for over 30 years working  both in private practice and across various agencies, including child and adolescent mental health, special education, correction, and child protection. 

Professional Qualifications & Memberships:
  • Registered Psychologist

I work with:
  • Children and teenagers (including those with special needs and disability - eg. ASD)

  • Adults / Couples

My sessions are focussed with the aim of clients finding ways to lead rich and fulfilling lives. 

As a Registered Psychologist I engage in ongoing professional development and supervision (clinical, cultural and with peers) to keep me learning and growing as a therapist, and to ensure I meet the requirements necessar to retain my practicing certificate.

At present I am undergoing extensive training to become a registered Imago Couple Therapist (refer book titled "Getting The Love You Want").  

I look forward to meeting and working with you.
