I am a registered psychologist with more than 20 years of experience delivering psychological services and therapy. I hold a Bachelors Degree in Behavioural Science and a Masters Degree in Psychology. I have worked in clinical private practice since 2004. My approach to mental health and wellness is informed through the perspective of Developmental Psychology, with the understanding that we all continue to grow and develop throughout our lifespan.
I also have a background in applied neuropsychology and a broad base of training which helps me to understand at a deep level what is happening for people. Science-based and informed understanding along with extensive experience helps me formulate the best therapeutic response possible for every person that I see.
Therapeutic modalities that I am trained in and incorporate include: Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing (EMDR); Cognitive Behavioural Therapy; Acceptance and Commitment Therapy; Mindfulness; Somatic Therapy; Brainspotting; Biofeedback training; Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction; Coherence Therapy; Emotion Focussed Therapy; Motivational Interviewing; Narrative Therapy and Solution-Focused Brief Therapy.
I can deliver all of my services through Telehealth (Zoom) to ensure accessibility no matter what location a person may live in or their circumstances regarding health, mobility or other factors.
The treatment of trauma-related mental health difficulties and the application of Trauma Informed Practice have been my main therapeutic focus for the past 14 years. Client groups that I have worked with include adult survivors of sexual abuse, “First Responders”, mothers with birth trauma, victims of crime, victims of domestic violence and abuse, road accident survivors etc.
My current interests also include relationships, sexuality and sexual identity. I am a “Sex Positive Therapist”and am sensitive to the needs of LGBTIQ+ identifying individuals, as well as individuals struggling with sexuality-related issues.
I accept Mental Health Care Plans and self-referral. Rebates are also available through Private Health.
