I'm a Clinical Psychologist providing affordable psychology services that assist people to cope with a range of issues including those related to: anxiety, mood, attention/hyperactivity, parenting stress, self esteem, job or study stress, grief and loss, and relationship difficulties. I have memberships with the: Australian Psychological Society, Australian Clinical Psychology Association, and Australian Association for Cognitive Behavioural Therapy. I can provide consultations from my practice (Mon, Tues, and Thurs), or from the comfort of your own home on Fridays.

I deliver evidence based treatments such as Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), and always in accordance with the APS Code of Ethics. I favour a collaborative approach which means that I work with you to find solutions and strategies that are a good fit for you, and am always careful to respect your ultimate choices.

My approach is personal, warm, friendly, understanding, and empathic, which when combined with an evidence based treatment, maximises the chance of a good outcome. For GP referred clients: Standard fee: $175 (GAP=$50), low income fee: $155 (GAP=$30). BULK BILLING is available for the first 3 sessions, and all home visits (north of river).
