As a Clinical Psychologist Registrar, I am committed to growth-oriented psychological practice and treatment. I believe the therapeutic relationship acts as a powerful interface from which to build trust, self-belief, and healing. My aim is to guide clients in exploring internal or external paths toward a deeper understanding of self, others, and their environment.

I have experience working in mental health across hospital, community, and private practice settings. I am comfortable supporting clients of all ages and backgrounds with an array of complex psychological needs.

My training and skillset

I have completed a Masters of Psychology (Clinical), a Graduate Diploma in Psychology, and a Bachelor of Psychology (Hons).

I hold general registration with AHPRA and I am undertaking a pathway to endorsement as a Clinical Psychologist.

I maintain an active interest in teaching and research, particularly in relation to the complex inter-relationship between wellbeing and environment.

My therapeutic approach

My way of being with clients is guided by developmental, attachment, mindfulness, and trauma-informed perspectives. In addition, I predominantly draw from modalities including:

  • Internal Family Systems (IFS)
  • Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)
  • Acceptance & Commitment Therapy (ACT)
  • Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction
  • Schema Therapy
  • EMDR
My client care philosophy

I am centered in fostering a safe and non-judgmental practice, empowering the client as the expert in their life narrative. The therapeutic space we create together forms the basis of a secure foundation from which to feel heard, understood, and empowered to transform your life.

Clinical care at Oqea Cares is powered by the Oqea platform.
