In addition to her private practice in Fremantle, she works at Curtin University in the Counselling and Disability Services as a Counsellor.

Her training and ensuing practise has led to her drawing on many different theoretical approaches to understand and/or assist clients, including strategies arising within the Psychodynamic approach, Cognitive Behavioural approach, Interpersonal Therapy, Narrative therapy, Attachment theory and Object Relations theory to mention a few.
