As a registered Psychologist dedicated to fostering healing and growth through a holistic and person-centred approach to mental health. Whilst creating a safe and nurturing environment where individuals can explore their innermost thoughts and feelings, I aim to integrate evidence-based interventions with empathy and understanding to support my clients on their journey towards well-being.

With an in-depth understanding of human emotions and experiences, I specialise in areas such as depression, anxiety, interpersonal struggles, and neurodiversity. My interventions include CBT, DBT, Schema Therapy, Inter-personal Therapy, Clinical Hypno-Psychotherapy, IABA as well as Imago Couples Therapy.

I offer ADHD assessments as a distinct skill and service, recognising the unique needs and challenges faced by individuals with symptoms of inattentiveness and/or hyperactivity, which may significantly impact their functioning and quality of life. Additionally, I provide support to neurodiverse clients as well as those with additional needs, encompassing physical, intellectual, and psychosocial disabilities, e.g. NDIS participants – both verbal and non-verbal. I collaborate closely with their formal and informal supports to ensure comprehensive care.

Working within a positive behaviour framework, I conduct specialist behaviour assessments, tailor behavioural interventions, and develop behaviour management strategies and plans (interim and comprehensive behaviour support plans). Concurrently, I identify and report on potential restrictive practices to safeguard the well-being of all NDIS participants, with the ultimate goal being the facilitation of choice, control, and the highest quality of life possible for each individual. Subsequently, I conduct functional behavioural assessments to identify my clients’ unmet needs and/or the potential function of behaviours of concern.

With a commitment to ongoing learning and professional development, I stay abreast of the latest research and therapeutic techniques to provide comprehensive and effective care.

Passionate about empowering clients to live fulfilling lives, I strive to cultivate resilience and self-awareness in my valued clients and welcome all adults, older adults, neurodivergent individuals, Veterans, First Responders, Health Professionals, as well as the LGBTQI+ community.
