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 as an Applied Behavioural Analysis Play Therapist 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.
