My Approach

I use evidence based psychological therapies such as mindfulness-cognitive behavioural therapy, acceptance and commitment therapy, schema therapy, dialectical behavioural therapy, narrative therapy, compassion focussed therapy and interpersonal psychotherapy.  My approach draws from attachment and relational models to assist clients to meet their therapeutic goals.

I provide psychological therapy for adults, adolescents and children for a range of different presentations and from diverse cultural backgrounds.

Some presentations that I work with include:​

  • Mood disorders (e.g depression)   

  • Panic Disorder

  • Postnatal anxiety and depression

  • Relationship issues

  • Self-identity exploration

  • Grief and loss

  • Attachment issues

  • Anxiety Disorders

  • Birth trauma

  • Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) - Trauma including sexual assault, childhood trauma and early relationship trauma

  • Substance use disorders

My Experience

In my early career I gained experience working in therapeutic drug and alcohol services. It was here that I developed a passion for working with the individual and seeing beyond labels and stereotypes that can accompany psychological disorders. I have continued to work within alcohol and other drug services for over fifteen years. Most recently I have worked in clinical research roles at UNSW and the University of Sydney. I remain actively engaged in research,  publishing peer-reviewed journal articles and presenting at academic conferences. You can see a list of my publications here.

I have also worked in private practice where I have been able to further my training and experience working with anxiety disorders in young people, post-natal anxiety and depression along with parenting approaches that honour the child-parent relationship and remain respectful to all family members.  

I am a Psychology Board of Australia approved supervisor and I provide clinical supervision to clinical psychologists and those undergoing their clinical registrar programs.
