I commenced my tertiary education in Psychology and Criminology from the University of Montreal in Canada. I then completed a Bachelor Degree in Sexology at University of Quebec in Montreal. Whilst doing my degree, I received a scholarship to study in Belgium for a semester where I completed coursework from the Master in Family and Sexuality Studies from the Faculty of Psychology. After moving to Australia, I completed a Master of Clinical Counselling at the Australian Catholic University.
I am currently doing a Doctorate in Public Health at La Trobe University, specialising in the mental health of parents experiencing the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit and Special Care Nursery. This project has been motivated by my own personal experiences whilst having children.

I believe that mental health is a central component of an individual’s overall health that can be affected by current life challenges. Research reports that most people will face some mental health difficulties throughout their life. Therefore I think that an individual’s mental health exists on an ongoing continuum, which may improve or deteriorate from time to time.

Counselling can help by providing a safe and supportive environment. I think that psychological interventions need to be tailored to each person’s needs and circumstances. I have a strong interest in Schema Therapy and Attachment-based approaches.
