‘art is where life most readily transforms itself, the zone of indetermination through which all becomings must pass’.
I am a registered art therapist providing both long and short-term therapy to adults and children in my private practice.
I also work in schools with children who have worries too big for them and who struggle with learning. I run art therapy programs at UTS Insearch assisting new students transitioning from high school to university and I facilitate 'Here and Now' groups for Master's students at UWS.
I am also a practising artist, fine furniture maker and teacher.
Finding the right therapist is an important decision. If you would like to make contact, I would love to hear from you.

How long is an art therapy session?
Standard sessions are 1 hour in duration. Prior to a child commencing art psychotherapy, an initial consultation with one or more parents/guardians is recommended and these consultations are normally up to 1:15 in duration.
Do I need to have any art experience or skills before starting art therapy?
No previous art making experience is required.
Do I need to bring anything to the session?
All art materials will be provided.
What happens if I need to cancel a session?
Cancellation requires 24 hours notice or full payment for the session will be required.
Are sessions confidential?
Safety, trust and confidentiality are all integral to the way I work. I will only share the content of a session with a client’s permission or if I believe a client is at risk of harm or self harm, or in the event of a court order.
