what is stronger 

than the human heart

which shatters over and over

and still lives


Hi, my name is Justine, I'm glad you dropped by my website and hope you will find some useful information here. I recognise that choosing a therapist is a difficult task and that sometimes it takes a while to find someone who works well with you. Please don't hesitate to give me a call, have a talk about what you are looking for and see how my responses sit with you.

I am a Counsellor and Psychotherapist specialising in Art Therapy and my private practice is based in Brisbane, Queensland. Over the past 21 years, I have extensive experience working with adults, children & young people on issues relating to: adverse childhood experiences, complex trauma, mental health, relationships, eating and body image issues and existential crisis. For professionals working in mental health, I offer Clinical Supervision and am registered as a supervisor with ACA and ANZACATA. My art therapy training was undertaken in the Masters of Mental Health program (University of QLD School of Medicine). I am a member of the Australian Counselling Association, PACFA and a Registered Art Therapist with the Australian, New Zealand and Asian Creative Arts Therapies Association (ANZACATA). There is more information regarding my background here.
