Navigating  Neurodiversity

Who self regulates your child when you can not be there?.  

We only get one opportunity to provide the “appropriate” safety that many we work with have yet to feel. Once the feeling of safety is gone there is no way to replace it.

Educating parents, support workers and the community  in a series of 4 sessions … we first look at our own breathing and interoception and how this can and does influence others. The need for self regulation before coregulation. Consider how you feel the energy around different people. If you are unable to self regulate  this will impact all around you. Consider how this impacts our loved ones when we trust those with the care of our loved ones. Instead of calm spreading, anxiety is in its place.

 We all need to know how to  self-regulate. Then we can be sure those around us will feel this and be safe. We cannot learn or take on new information if we are not feeling safe. Everything is a choice.


Please choose Harmony.

About Me

Passionate Counselling Professional - Trauma Specialist

 I have 25 years’ experience working within mandated and voluntary environments. I have as many years of education to go with this, as I have evolved from a Preschool Mothercraft Nurse (1994), to Youth Worker (1997), DisAbility services support Co-Ordinator (2001), DisAbilty peer Support Co-ordinator (2007),  Counsellor (2007), Operations Manager Commercial Construction (2010-2015),  High Risk Residential Counsellor (2015-2018), Department of Justice  HCC, and Child  Protection Family Violence - Case Management (2018-2020). I have obtained 23 different training qualifications. I specialize in helping people identify and achieve their personal goals by coping with the issues that are causing them distress, anxiety, and stress. I take great pride in the progress and success of my clients.  I'm a registered family therapist and counsellor with the Victorian Counselling Association, Mental Health Professionals Network, NACCHO ( National Aboriginal Community Controlled Health Organisation), ACWA, NAADAC (The Association for Addiction Professionals), Centre for Healing, IICT (International Institute of Complementary Therapies) and Mental Health Foundation Australia. I have management and practitioner expertise in Government, NFP and Private sector in fields of Mental Health and Community and Human Services.  Specialising in working with people with complex needs, utilising evidence based, targeted therapeutic interventions with a trauma informed lens.

Psychological therapy creates space to explore your thoughts, feelings, and actions, and to work towards your goals in alignment with your values.


I work from a Trauma informed framework. I specialise in Epigenetics, which provides opportunities to become skilful at being present and engaged in the moment, coping through crises, managing feelings, and interacting with others. I also draw from body-based therapies, which focus on your relationship to and empathy with your own felt body.

My specialities include Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (Developing useful thoughts & behaviours to help improve your mood); Interpersonal Therapy (Resolving problems with relationships and life events to help improve your mood); and Skills Training (Building coping skills in areas such as communication, problem-solving, relaxation, and stress management).


Integrative approaches.

Integrative approaches honour the mind-body-spirit connection and its role in mental health recovery, including:

  • Nutrition, movement, and lifestyle counselling

  • Mindfulness meditation & guided imagery (breathwork)

  • Intuitive eating approaches

  • Disordered Eating

We acknowledge the Djab Wurrung and Jardwadjali people, this is a sacred place known as Gariwerd.  Djab Wurrung and Jardwadjali people are the custodians of the lands and waters of the Grampians region in which we meet. We pay respect to elders past, present, and emerging. We acknowledge and respect the Djab Wurrung and Jardwadjali people’s emotional, physical, and spiritual connection with their country and communities. . The descendants of these traditional peoples remain in the area to this day, carrying on the culture and stories of  our unseeded land of rugged sandstone mountain ranges in the northwest of Victoria known as The Grampians.
