I also hold a Masters Degree in Social Work from Sydney University in Australia. My counselling training has been in direct practice and Trauma Informed Practice Training with BlueKnot in Australia.
I have frontline experience working with complex clinical management of comorbid issues such as drugs and alcohol, EAP, homelessness and long term chronic pain. My roles have been with injury management, charitable organizations and private EAP to support people to re-establish their life. My counselling is informed by Gestalt as I was trained under a Laura Perls counsellor in the United States.
I am an EMDR Level I trained clinician endorsed by EMDR Association of Australia
As I have multiple lived experience having been raised in a single parent household escaping Family & Domestic Violence. I provide a strengths based approach with lived experience with trauma and family separation. After many years of working with homeless young people, veterans, frontline emergency workers in the USA and Australia I believe I can share the journey with clients by providing unique insight to trauma, divorce, child raising, and the rest of life's challenges that we are faced by.
I also do mental health peer work groups with people who are living with schizophrenia, bipolar and more.
I look forward to walking alongside you as you live in your community grow and develop a new identity for a better life

"Rodney answered me in a timely manner, helped immensely from the start.
I was asked to review the site - the therapist deserves at least 5 stars! for professionalism, prompt responses, and for being amazing during voice sessions. I am very happy with his approach."
