I'm a wife, a Mum of 4 kids ranging in age from 10 to 21, an Autism Parent Adviser, a Mental Health Youth Advisor and Program Director and Founder of a Youth and Family Support Charity. I live on the beautiful Central Coast of NSW, Australia.
MY PASSION IS HELPING PEOPLE THRIVE
Over the years I've helped women through many issues, particularly in the areas of raising a child with autism, raising teenage boys, anxiety, fear, lack of self-esteem and self-worth, setting boundaries, finding their voice, and supporting them through mental health issues.
I can help you overcome barriers, push past limitations, get to the core of an issue, gain clarity, set boundaries, make informed choices, improve relationships, build your communication skills, learn more about your true self, which all helps towards developing into the strong and confident person that God wants you to be.
I've mentored and coached youth and young adults to help them overcome obstacles in their lives, many of which have gone on to achieve much more than they'd ever imagined possible.
As I've overcome my own mental health issues, I have lived experience on how terribly distressing and lost we can feel at times. I use this to approach my clients in a non-judgemental, caring and authentic way.
I established Lighthouse Family Support in response to the growing need for Christian-based mental health support. I'm a faithful Catholic and know that although life can be hard, bringing God into our mess, always makes things better. Even if you don't believe in God, he believes in you!
I combine my 21 years of parenting, (including raising a son with autism), with my professional experience and qualifications in the areas of mental health, parent support and youth work to help individuals and families become the best they can be.
I truly believe, that given the right support, everyone has the capacity to thrive!
