Helping people have more meaningful, authentic relationships

I live and work on Whadjuk Boodja, home to the Nyoongar people. I acknowledge the traditional owners and custodians of this land on which I live and pay my respects to Indigenous Elders past, present and emerging. Sovereignty has never been ceded. It always was and always will be Aboriginal land.

The quality of our relationships* influences the quality of our life
*especially the relationship we have with ourselves

This is the core belief that shapes my work. When disconnected from ourselves we become "soul sick". AKA, we feel empty, numb, lost, self-doubting, as if who we are is a lie... We pretend to be someone we're not (but not intentionally) in attempt to be loved, to belong, to be supported... This way of living may feel good, but it's not good for us, because it doesn't last. 

Think about it - from this inauthentic place, how can we possibly have meaningful relationships that bring us joy and connection? The relationships we form from being someone we're not are destined to be conditional and temporary. You cannot wear a mask forever, and if people have fallen in love with a mask, those relationships are bound to crumble at some point.

It's hard to digest, I know. It's understandable that we don't want to step into the truth of who we are because it's f*cking confronting, uncertain, risky and we don't even know what it looks like! No wonder we compare, copy or follow other people's paths, not our own. We need to hold compassion for ourselves when embarking on this process. It's this journey that I help people through.

Online Coaching & Therapy

I am a registered counsellor and sex-positive relationship coach, supporting individuals and couples through navigating experiences of being LGBTQIA+, coming out, polyamory/ENM, transitioning while in a relationship, kink, sexual health and more.

The foundation of my work is in self-connection coaching. We cannot control, change or fully understand other people. By nurturing and empowering our relationship to self, the other pieces fall into place. 

I help people connect to their:

Courage

Self-confidence & voice

Purpose

Self-worth & self-trust

Sexuality & self-expression

Gifts & skills 

Passion

Self-belief

Assertiveness

Joy

Life meaning & path

 

Education & Workshops

I run self development workshops on topics including sexuality, using writing as therapy, breaking down gender stereotypes, building confidence, dating 101, connecting to your own femininity/masculinity, and more.

I also run workshops for professionals in advocating for change, how to work with LGBTQIA+ clients, and creating inclusive, nurturing cultures and communities.

Writing & Interviews

I write about all things relationships, sex, dating, LGBTQIA+ topics and doing the "inner work". You can find my blog on Medium

 

If you're recording a podcast or writing an article and you're seeking a therapist's insights, I'm your human!

 

I've been interviewed for Fashion Journal, That's Orgasmic and other lifestyle platforms, and written for publications nationally and internationally.
