Child and Family Counselling

Melbourne Based Clinical Social Worker and Play Therapist

Hi, Welcome to my website. 

I hope that the information here helps you with the answers you are searching for.


I am an Accredited Mental Health Social Worker, specialising in Child and Family Practice and Play Therapy. I began my career working with children with Autism and their families. Over the past 10 years I have worked with children and families in Foster Care, Child Protection, Family Support Services and Counselling Services, building and enhancing my knowledge and therapeutic skills. 


Now working in private practice, I focus on addressing emotional and behavioural issues for children. I aim to help children recover from trauma and grief, develop resilience, enhance family relationships and adjust to new social circumstances in positive ways.


I also focus on supporting their families in navigating the challenges of parenting. As a parent myself, I know first hand just how challenging parenting can be!

Please feel free to contact me for a confidential discussion as to how I can support your family. 

Bachelor of Behavioural Neuroscience (Psychology) - Monash University.
Master of Social Work - University of Melbourne. 
Clinical Certificate of Play Therapy - Play Therapy Australia.
