Announcement icon I currently provide telehealth video sessions only. The Medicare rebate is $131.65 with a GP Mental Health Treatment Plan referral.


My interest and passion for health care began in my early adolescence as a volunteer at a school for children with special needs. In the years that followed I worked with people on the spectrum with high behavioural needs and also in group homes for people with chronic and severe mental illness. I then trained as a Clinical Psychologist and continued to deepen my experience and passion in the 20+ years I have worked with NSW Health in a number of different of roles. I now work with people across a broad range of issues as listed.
My therapeutic approach includes a combination of acceptance/mindfulness-based approaches with existential/meaning based themes. I use these approaches both in the therapy I provide and daily in my own life.
In addition to my clinical experience, I have a diverse range of interests in my life which I bring to the work I do. I have a flexible and fluid style of therapy combined with a client-centred respectful approach. I adapt and modify our work to suit you and to achieve what you are seeking out of our sessions.
