The human mind builds a complex and delicate bridge between our internal mental world and the world around us. As a Clinical Psychologist Registrar, I primarily focus on how a client’s internal mental states influence their responses to their environment. I believe that psychotherapy is about integrating new understandings and experiences about ourselves and our relationships with others which enables opportunities for lasting positive changes.

As a clinician who has worked across community and private settings with people from all walks of life, I welcome all ages, Veterans, First Responders, Health Professionals and the LGBTQI+ community. I have experience working with but not limited to: anxiety, depression, complex trauma and relationship difficulties.

My training and skillset

I have a Master of Clinical Psychology, a Master of Professional Psychology and a Bachelor of Psychology with Honours.

I have general registration with AHPRA and am currently working towards endorsement as a Clinical Psychologist.

I am a Member of the Australian Psychological Society.

My therapeutic approach

I primarily draw upon an integrative therapeutic framework focusing on relational, trauma, and attachment informed approaches to meet each individual client.  I also utilise:

  • Interpersonal Therapy
  • Cognitive Behavioural Therapy
  • Schema Therapy
  • Dialectic Behavioural Therapy
  • Acceptance and Commitment Therapy
  • Mentalization Based Therapy


My client care philosophy

I am a clinician who is committed to providing clients with a safe and empathic space to connect and explore a pathway towards living a life that is meaningful to them.
