About

I am a registered psychologist working in Fitzroy/Northcote with children, adolescents and adults. I have a special interest in trauma-related impacts, eating disorders , addiction and cultural adjustment/cross-cultural mental health, however work with a variety of issues including general mental health concerns (e.g. depression/anxiety), life changes/stresses, grief and loss, relationship/workplace issues, as well as sexuality/gender identity. With children I combine play, creative interventions and talking therapy. I place emphasis on creating a safe and interesting therapy space. I also provide appointments in German and Finnish.
I do both more focused short-term as well as longer-term work with clients. I use Emotion-focused and Schema therapy models in my work with adults alongside mindfulness/skills-based work and always start the therapy process with a collaborative assessment. With children I work with both the child as an individual as well as, as part of a family system.
Please contact me via phone/email or through my website and we can discuss further.
