About Me

I am a proud Social Worker and Counsellor. I have dedicated my life to helping people who struggle with mental health issues.

I am originally from the West Indies but have lived and studied in the United States of America and Australia. My method and interventions are strength based and I utilise Narrative and Solutions focused therapy. I also specialise in Trauma based therapy and Child-Centred Play therapy.

I am an accredited Mental Health Social Worker with more than 10 years experience in the industry, working in both Australia and the USA. I hold a Bachelors degree from Texas Christian University and a Masters of Social Work from the University of Melbourne. I also obtained a Graduate Diploma in Mental Health Sciences from Monash University in 2016.

I have worked in a clinical hospital setting as well as in private practice counselling individuals and couples. I also present continuing practical education seminars and in-house training for mental health clinicians, lawyers and other professionals.

I call myself “The Travelling Shrink” because I believe that every person has the right to access high-quality healthcare, regardless of where they live or what their lifestyle commitments are.

I love a good story, science, technology and Cricket.
