Work With Me

Because kids don’t come with an instruction manual

Frequently you think that everyone else has this parenting gig all figured out.

Take it from me. They don’t.

That’s what I know to be true after three decades as a teacher, counsellor, and educator, supporting thousands of parents and educators.


I provide parents and educators with the knowledge, strategies and practical skills they need to help their kids build confidence, resilience, and take control of their anxiety.

This is how we can work together

Private Consultations

I dedicate some of my time to working personally with a handful of private clients. During these consultations, the focus is on making sense of specific concerns regarding your child’s social and emotional wellbeing and behaviour. I listen to your worries, answer your questions and offer developmental insight into what is potentially happening for your child. Based on our discussion, I will provide you with strategies to help you address your concerns and support your child’s healthy emotional development.

My role is NOT one of a therapeutic counsellor. I provide insights and education with regards to children’s development and help you find strategies that suit your child’s unique developmental needs and best support their social and emotional wellbeing. I help parents navigate their way through everyday parenting concerns and equip them with the skills, strategies and insights they need to feel empowered and confident as they manage the everyday stressors with their children.

Diverse Needs Consultation Sessions

There are many complexities when you are parenting a child with invisible diverse needs, whether it be ADHD, Anxiety, Asperger’s, Sensory Processing Disorders or Learning Disabilities and frequently you can feel isolated, overwhelmed and judged by both family and friends – no one told you it would be this way. I can help you on this journey as you navigate the minefield of getting a diagnosis, medication, finding the right school, starting school, dealing with issues that have arisen at school, and transitioning from primary to secondary school or out into the workforce.


I have been supporting families like yours for the past 15 years and can support you in moving through these obstacles so you feel empowered and confident.


Minor concerns often grow into major problems if they aren’t proactively addressed. Please don’t spend any more time feeling unsure of what to do. Book a private consultation now and I will can support you in moving through these concerns.
