Sydney Addictions Recovery
Do you struggle with alcohol, drugs, gambling or another addictive behaviour that is affecting your life, or the life of a loved one? I specialise in helping clients manage substance and compulsion addictions. Addiction is complex and seeking help can sometimes feel overwhelming. There are many treatment options available, and together we can find an approach that suits you.

I believe that most addictions form as a way of helping people cope with pain, trauma or other difficulties. My approach to counselling is collaborative and takes into account your whole life - your past, present, and what you want your future to be like. I support clients and their families with a mixture of education, counselling and safety strategies.
I am a Clinical Member of the Psychotherapy and Counselling Federation of Australia, and I am required to abide by strict ethical guidelines. I regularly attend clinical supervision with an experienced supervisor, as well as ongoing training and development, to ensure I can provide the best and most up-to-date support for you.
Before becoming a therapist, I worked in the entertainment industry. I have an understanding of the difficulties that come with non-traditional and high-profile jobs, and I'm experienced in helping clients manage addiction issues when they travel frequently.
I have extensive experience working in several Sydney rehabilitation hospitals, as well as counselling services and group therapy programs. In particular, I have worked with the family members, including children, of people who use substances and potentially addictive behaviours.

I have extensive experience with addictions, and specialise in working with the family members of people who use drugs, alcohol, gambling, or have complex mental health needs. I provide a safe, non-judgemental place for you to ask questions, explore the reasons why addiction has become a part of your life, and make choices for positive change. I take the approach that you are the expert in your life - my job is to help you work towards creating a life that you are happy and proud to live....
