PERSONAL DETAILS AND INTERESTS
I am a registered psychologist with a diverse range of experience across various stages of the lifespan, from early intervention through to adult. I have worked across the disability sector, occupational rehabilitation and the corporate sector, to provide a wide range of psychological services.
As a therapist, I am compassionate, warm, and interested in getting to know who you are as a person, so that we can work together collaboratively to achieve the goals that are most important to you. I believe that we all have an innate desire to understand ourselves, experience meaningful relationships with others and to reach our full potential. My approach is grounded in supporting you to understand yourself more fully, identify your personal values and work through barriers or patterns in your life that have been holding you back to help you move forward in life.
In sessions, I draw from a range of evidence based modalities and psychological theory, primarily psychodynamic therapy, solution-focused therapy, humanistic and attachment theory, positive psychology, and the use of active relaxation strategies to assist with anxiety and stress management.
EXPERIENCE (AREAS OF EXPERTISE)
I have worked with clients right across the lifespan, from early intervention through to adolescents and adults in a range of diverse settings.
I began my career in psychology working as a behavioural therapist for a number of years with young children on the Autism Spectrum and their families, to provide behavioural intervention services, social skill development and parenting support strategies.
In more recent years, I have gained extensive experience in the disability sector, as both a psychologist and behaviour support practitioner working with individuals and families under the NDIS. This includes individuals with developmental disabilities, cognitive, physical and psychosocial disabilities and their support networks.
I also have experience conducting a range of cognitive and learning assessments for children, adolescents and adults.
In addition to the above, I have provided vocational counselling and assessments, short term counselling services through workplace Employee Assistance Programs (EAP), facilitated workplace mental health training programs and provided one-to-one coaching focused on enhancing workplace communication and conflict management skills.
