My secret talent:
The ability to sleep anywhere anytime.
What’s it like to be in a room with me?
Over the past 15 years, I’ve had the privilege of working with people from different backgrounds in various countries and settings (schools, private clinics, hospitals and community mental health settings) and I believe our community, upbringing, and relationships (past and present) shape how we see ourselves and how we navigate through life. I enjoy working with others and developing genuine relationships grounded in trust, openness, and curiosity. I strive to see the world through my client’s lens and understand their unique family, cultural, and life experiences. My clients have described my therapeutic approach as open, non-judgemental and encouraging, which has allowed my client’s to be vulnerable and created a safe space to work together on their journey.
What’s my non-negotiable when it comes to taking care of my own mental health?
I try my best to prioritise well-being and balance in life, which includes pilates, walking, swimming, spending time with friends and family (which includes early morning walks for phone calls home to Ireland), listening to audiobooks, podcasts, and spending time hiking and at the beach.
My life motto:
“You only live once, but if you do it right, once is enough.” – Mae West
