Hi, as one of the Partners at Seva House Therapeutic Services I welcome you to Seva House – a place of healing and giving from the heart. I have a Bachelor and Masters degree in Social Work from Charles Sturt University. I am an Accredited Mental Health Social Worker, Specialist Victim Services Counsellor (Tier 2) and Accredited EMDR Consultant (EMDRAA) who has a passion for working with Trauma. I have worked for Non-Government Organisations in Early Intervention and Child protection working with families with multiple vulnerabilities suffering from issues such as mental health, drug and alcohol and domestic/family violence. I worked for 9 years for Hunter New England Health as a specialist sexual assault counsellor working with children, adolescents and adults.
I have been working in private practice since 2016 providing therapy to children adolescents and adults The majority of my work is working with victims of violent crimes such as sexual assault and domestic/family violence. I provide clinical supervision and EMDR consultation both individually and group to mental health professionals across Australia and Internationally. I love my work as an EMDR Consultant which allows me to share my passion about this amazing therapy and to mentor and encourage other therapists as they engage in their EMDR journey.
I love the therapeutic work that is involved in the therapeutic relationship and have a strong passion for learning and upskilling, to always be informed to provide the best practice that I am able and this passion spills over into my love of providing Clinical Supervision and EMDR Consultation. My love of EMDR and parts work inspires me to share, guide and encourage other therapists to all the opportunities and benefits that EMDR Therapy can provide. My practice comes from a non-judgmental, respectful stance practising mindfulness both within and outside my work.
I am trained in EMDR, Clinical Resource Therapy (Advanced Ego States), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Compassion Focused Therapy (CFT), Polyvagal Theory and Mindfulness. All of these therapies integrate beautifully together and are from evolutionary theory, neuroscience and Buddhism and help create an environment that is safe, kind and accepting.
In my personal life I am passionate about animals, nature and love spending my time off with my pets, reading and listening to music. When I get the chance to travel I love to go to isolated parts of the world where the reefs are pristine and snorkel.
I look forward to meeting you and working alongside you on your journey whether as a client or as a professional.
