About

I am a registered Mental Health Social Worker and Clinical Family Therapist with experience working in public and private mental health settings. I primarily work with children and adolescents using a systemic approach of involving parents where possible. My work with children incorporates play and considers their developmental age. I also offer therapeutic interventions to individual adults and families. I enjoy the dynamic nature of family and parent-child therapy, to mobilise individual and collective strengths that will promote deeper connectivity and improve patterns of communication.
I am experienced working on a range of mental health problems including; behavioural disorders, oppositional defiance disorder, neuro-diversity, eating disorders, anxiety, depression and trauma. I also enjoy working with people who need support due to; life stressors, relationship problems, life stage transition, parent burnout and family discord/conflict.
If you, your child or your family need some extra support during a challenging time or due to long-standing mental health difficulties, I am happy to hear from you. Clients are eligible for Medicare rebates or National Disability Insurance Schemes (NDIS) claims. Feel free to email or phone for a chat to find out if I am good fit for you and your family.
