I am warm, open and experienced Doctor of clinical psychology who works with all sorts of issues, big and small, from life adjustment issues to mental health difficulties. My focus is on mental health wellness. I work with proven psychology treatments for mood and relationship issues for all ages, including couples.  I aim to treat each client as an individual with their own unique biology, personal history, strengths and areas for change, utilising a collaborative approach to provide your own program of evidence based intervention. 

I specialise in a range of evidence based therapies and focus on your experiences as a person, rather than a patient. I understand that everyone needs help at various points in their life and psychological intervention can help. I offer skype and room based sessions and a significant proportion of my fee is claimable through medicare and private health.

Stress, worry and anxiety are all normal parts of life. You don't need to suffer alone. I specialise in proven and effective treatments that will be tailored to you as an individual.
