About

As your psychologist, I work collaboratively with you to help you pursue a more fulfilling life. That means understanding your needs and therapy preferences and involving you in all decisions about your personalised treatment plan. My compassionate approach means you can trust me to listen without judgement and use evidence-based therapy to help you develop your self-awareness and confidence. The therapies I draw on are strength-based so they emphasise your resilience and resourcefulness in the face of adversity.
I have particular experience in supporting people living with chronic physical illnesses and associated complications. In my public health role, I am a Clinical Psychologist in Chronic Pain service on the NSW mid-north coast and have previously worked in a Diabetes Clinic at a major public hospital in Sydney.
Making the decision the reach out to a professional is a big step! It's really important to 'click' with your psychologist so that a strong therapeutic relationship can develop. If you would like to discuss making an appointment please don’t hesitate to contact me.
