 I completed my four year Psychology degree in 2007 and completed a further two years of supervised practice to become a fully registered psychologist. Since this time I have worked with both individuals and groups in primarily private practice and occupational rehabilitation settings.

I enjoy supporting people with an individualised and relationship-focused approach, collaborating together to discover ‘what works’ for each person. My preference is to tailor a treatment program to the individual, utilising a range of therapy modes and techniques including cognitive behavioural therapy, mindfulness, acceptance and commitment therapy and interpersonal psychotherapy.

I have experience working with many different issues including anxiety disorders, depression, anger management, unresolved grief, drug and alcohol, assertiveness training, communication skills, chronic illness, conflict resolution, internet gaming addiction, adjustment difficulties, pain management, work stress, vocational direction and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder to name but a few.

It is important to me that people feel our sessions provide them a safe, positive and non-judgemental environment to explore issues and achieve positive change and growth.
