My Story

Hi, my name is Missy! I’m a trauma-informed, clinically trained child and family therapist, and an Internal Family Systems therapy practitioner.  

My journey began as a school volunteer, supporting children with behavioral issues.  After 5 years of volunteering experience, I became very curious about child behaviours - which led me to work in this field in the professional capacity. Since, I have had the privilege of working with many families with a history of intergenerational trauma, and with children exhibiting various behavioural symptoms. During my career, I witnessed endless heartwarming transformations in both the children and the family. I am here to guide you and your family through complex and difficult times. I am passionate about my work and I truly care about my clients and their families and always do my absolute best to support every client I meet! 

Professional Memberships: Australian Counselling Association; Australian Play Therapists Association. 

Qualifications: B.Soc.Sc (Psych), DipCouns, and Play Therapy Clinical Training, Circle of Security Parenting Course facilitator, Internal Family Systems Therapy practitioner (L1)
