I am a clinical psychologist and have 15 years’ experience providing psychological treatment and support to individuals across the lifespan in government community and hospital, and private practice settings. I have a passion for working, with and supporting, young people between infancy to young adulthood and their families to reach their potential.
I have completed a Doctor of Philosophy in Clinical Psychology, and am a Full Member of the Australian Psychological Society, and a member of the APS College of Clinical Psychologists.
I have experience working with individuals who present with a range of psychological mental health conditions, developmental conditions, as well as those with dual or more complex diagnoses and presentations, including Attention Deficit Disorder, Autism Spectrum Disorder, Intellectual Disability, behavioural problems, Motor Disorders, sleep disorders, grief, adjustment to stressors and trauma, difficulties in social skills, emotion and self regulation, problem solving, and/or academic skills (i.e., organization, time management).
I also have experience working with individuals with disabilities and identifying strategies to support their specific needs with a focus on positive behaviours.
I have a particular interest in the treatment of sleep disorders and mental health conditions (i.e., anxiety, trauma, depressive symptoms), and tools to assist individuals to reach their psychological and academic potential.
I primarily provide psychological intervention from Cognitive Behaviour Therapy, and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) treatment frameworks, and also draw from other treatment frameworks, including Solution-Focused Therapy, as appropriate as I believe it is key to adapt treatment to the individual’s needs.
I believe it is essential for family members to be involved in the treatment of the young person wherever possible so as to support them to effect change, as well as support parents with parenting, connection and/or parent-child relationship strategies as deemed appropriate.
