I’m Leanne.

I’m a registered psychologist and certified art therapist with a particular interest in complex posttraumatic stress disorder. In my practice, I focus on providing validation, support and resources for healing what can be mended and holding what can only be carried.

Being a psychologist doesn’t mean I know what’s best for you. It doesn’t mean I see you as a category or a diagnostic label. It doesn’t mean I can tell you what you need to do.

It means I have the honour of you trusting me with the pieces of the jigsaw, allowing me to hold them without judgment as you sort them into a design that works best for you.

It means I have the privilege of shining light for your feet as you pick your way through the debris to create a path only you can create.

It means we become detectives together, being curious and exploring the dark corners, shifting what we can while accepting what is.

You don’t have to hand over the reins of your life to anyone. You don’t need someone to fix you or heal you or advise you. 

But you may need a safe container for the hard stuff, so it can be shifted, witnessed and held. You don’t have to walk this way alone.
