Rainbow Psychology and Therapy Services

Therapy and psychological services for individuals, couples, relationships and professionals

Are you experiencing problems related to your emotional health, relationships or perhaps a major life change? Maybe you live rurally or for some reason it is hard to find a therapist or psychologist in your area.

I am a New Zealand registered Clinical Psychologist with 25 years of experience working with a range of mental health and addiction issues as well as with trauma survivors.  I work with people who identify as heterosexual and with LGBTQ and have a passion for gender issues, sexuality and alternative relationship structures such as polyamory, open relationships or other forms of ethical non-monogamy. I work with individuals, couples and more, providing online therapy. I am also available for consultation and supervision with health professionals

What To Expect

In order to find out if we are a good match for each other and with online work, I offer a free one-off online 30 minute appointment via Zoom. I will ask you about yourself, your situation and what you need. This is also an opportunity for you to find out about me and how I work so that we can decide if we are going to work together.


Here is a video clip with some background about me and more information about how I work
