All human endeavors occur in the context of relationship, whether in natural groups (e.g., families) or social groups (e.g., organizations and work groups). In either of these contexts, relationships flow through cycles and transitions, and sometimes end. These transitions are naturally challenging for people both personally and socially

As a Registered Psychologist, my specialty is working with people in their natural social structures (work and family). I have 38 years of experience in the field, and extensive, post graduate training and professional supervision in working with systems. My goal is to help people going through difficult transitions to find solutions based on authenticity and good faith. Most often, these solutions come from resources that people already have or that they can themselves create. This naturally builds self confidence and trust.

Long lasting solutions cannot be forced. They have to be discovered or created collaboratively to be really effective, and fit with the natural human spirit. Working with the Collaborative Family Law group in Victoria is perfect match with my professional background, training, and my personal and professional values.
