I thought I’d share a little about myself.
I grew up on a farm.
I’ve always been creative and interested in the wellbeing of others – these are my defining features.
I went to university and studied psychology and then women’s studies.
I spent 12 months travelling around Australia in an old van.
I worked in a women’s refuge with women and children who survived domestic violence.
I rode my bicycle across the north of Western Australia, from Broome to Kununurra on a dirt track.
I worked with young Indigenous women, and then as a drug and alcohol counsellor in the Kimberley.
I spent 6 months travelling and cycling solo around Southeast Asia.
I went through some very difficult times and started seeing my own counsellor and psychotherapist.
I worked with women and families in Perth.
I got married and had a family.
I worked as a community artist, and also participated in some group art exhibitions.
I wanted to learn how to deepen the work I was doing as a counsellor, so I studied and practiced psychotherapy (gestalt therapy).
I turned 40.
I always had a dream I’d like to one day work in a holistic wellness centre, then I discovered Mundaring Wellness Centre and knew it was the place for me! I now work in both Mundaring and at Fremantle Counselling & Psychological Services, as well as seeing clients from far-and-wide online.
