Asking for help is never easy.
When you encounter difficulties or challenges, it’s only natural to first try and figure things out on your own. But sometimes you get stuck and, no matter what you do, there doesn’t seem to be a way out.
It takes transparency and courage to ask for professional help. As an experienced clinical psychologist and therapist, I’m here to walk part of the journey with you to help you get unstuck, overcome challenges and start thriving instead of surviving.
Since starting my private practice more than 13 years ago, I can honestly say it’s been an honour to support people from diverse backgrounds to watch them thrive and live life to the full. The journey isn’t easy, it rarely is, but you will reap the rewards if you’re willing to put in the hard yards.
Therapy in Darwin
Relationship or couples counselling
As the NT’s only Certified Gottman Therapist, I provide relationship counselling using the research-based Gottman Method. This popular counselling method starts with 3 in-depth assessment sessions before therapy commences. These 3 sessions can take place via telehealth followed by in-person therapy when I’m in Darwin once a month for a week-long clinic.
Make a telehealth appointment by visiting Telehealth Counselling – Online Booking. If you prefer to see me in person for the 3 assessment sessions, please book here. You have the option of booking all 3 assessment sessions on the same day followed by the first couples therapy session later in the week. It’s essential to check my calendar to ensure I have sessions available.
Anxiety and depression
I run a week-long clinic in Nightcliff, Darwin, every month offering treatment for anxiety and depression. The easiest way to book a session is to head over to the Online Bookings page to pick a date and time. If you have questions regarding fees and rebates, check out the Frequently Asked Questions.
Telehealth appointments are a great way to work with me. Research has shown that telehealth therapy is as effective as in-person counselling.
It’s possible to meet with me once a week or fortnightly via telehealth followed by one or more in-person counselling session(s) during my week-long clinic in Darwin.

We all lead busy lives and circumstances can change suddenly or unexpectedly. There are no hard and fast rules about the frequency of therapy sessions, and no expectations on my part.
You’re the one who decides how often you’d like to see me and whether you’re happy to have online sessions or prefer in-person counselling. You may prefer to start with weekly sessions, reduce it to fortnightly then see me monthly.
You’re in control
Choosing to see a psychologist to talk about issues you’re struggling with is no small thing. There’s absolutely no pressure on my part for you to talk about trauma or difficulties in your life when you don’t want to.
You decide what you want to talk about and how much detail you’re willing to share. You are in the driver’s seat and in control at all times because your personal autonomy is important to both of us.
