About Me

Allow me to give you a glimpse into my personal journey. I was born in Iceland and pursued my studies in Sweden. It was during my travels around the world that I met my husband, and we have been together for over 30 years. This connection brought me to Australia, where I currently reside. We have 3 children in their 20’s, and 2 dogs.

Nature holds a special place in my heart, I particularly enjoy riding my bike to the many local ocean pools in our area. I love to connect with friends by swimming in the cold invigorating water. In addition, I embrace activities such as yoga, gym, painting, and embarking on adventures with my husband in our trusty van.


Throughout my life, I have always had a profound sense of empathy and compassion towards others. This curiosity towards the human condition drove me to initially pursue a career in nursing, and then later as a counsellor.

I studied Psychology at University both in Sweden and in Australia as well as post-graduate studies in Family Therapy. For 13 years I worked for a large counselling organisation, before starting my private practice.

Everyone will experience suffering at some point in their life, and being human means, we are fallible and imperfect. Apart from my professional training, I bring the most important things I have learnt about being human, gained through overcoming my personal life experiences of both physical and emotional pain.

It is through these humbling experiences that I have gained a profound understanding about life challenges, love, connection, compassion, peace and being non-judgmental. What I truly love about my job as a therapist, is the privilege of being a part of and witnessing my client’s journey of growth and healing. Making a positive impact in someone's life and helping people to have more meaningful relationships is truly fulfilling.

Together, we can work towards achieving a happier, more fulfilled life and better relationships.
