I believe that my lived experience is as valuable to my work as the lessons from my study, and I apply what I have learned from both in the counselling room to offer help to those who ask for it.
I have a Bachelors in Applied Social Sciences, with a major in Counselling, as well as a Certificate in Mental Health and Addiction Support.
I specialise in trauma and sexual abuse, and work well with Maori and the LGBTQI+ community, but keeping in mind this does not exclude anyone else, my client base is varied and I am open to taking on most clientele.
I prefer to work with adults rather than children or adolescents as it fits better with my counselling style.
I love reading, movies and music, and hanging out with my whanau.
