ABOUT

About me

I am a warm and friendly clinical psychologist who offers individual therapy for adults and adolescents aged 16 and over for a range of psychological difficulties.

I have worked as a psychologist across private, public health and research settings, including in school and university counselling; research trials for PTSD and substance use disorders; community mental health and with refugee and asylum seeker communities.

I completed my undergraduate psychology studies at the University of Sydney and a Master of Clinical Psychology at the University of Technology Sydney. I am registered and endorsed as a Clinical Psychologist with the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (AHPRA).

Presentations I work with

  • Anxiety disorders (social anxiety; panic attacks; persistent worrying; obsessive-compulsive disorder)

  • Mood disorders (depression; bipolar disorder)

  • Trauma (post-traumatic stress disorder; childhood trauma)

  • LGBTQIA+ individuals (experiences of minority stress or social stress; questioning or exploring sexual or gender identity)

  • Difficulties in emotion regulation

  • Procrastination

  • Significant life stress

  • Relationship or interpersonal issues

  • ADHD and experiences of neurodiversity

  • Issues with alcohol or substance use

My approach

I work with clients to establish a collaborative therapeutic relationship, and tailor evidence-based treatments to suit individual needs. This might look like building an understanding of how past experiences have shaped current difficulties, drawing on strengths, building skills for managing difficult feelings and thoughts, and identifying goals and motivations for change. 

I am trained in evidence based therapies including cognitive behaviour therapy (CBT); schema therapy; acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT); dialectical behaviour therapy (DBT) and motivational interviewing.
