I have worked with clients with lived experience of foster care, adoption and childhood emotional, physical and sexual abuse and supported clients dealing with the National Redress Scheme.
I am a clinical psychologist with 25 years of experience working with adolescents, adults and older adults and combine face to face and telehealth support to clients across Australia. My approach is grounded in providing a warm and respectful therapeutic relationship and working together collaboratively to accommodate your individual needs and goals. I draw on a variety of therapies including psychodynamic psychotherapy, attachment-based and relational approaches as well as DBT and mindfulness. I support clients with anxiety, depression, trauma, low self-esteem, relationship issues, and clients coping with life transitions.

Many people today feel isolated and alone in their relationships as a result of the current difficult times of the pandemic. A basic human need is to connect and the breakdown of relationships can be extremely painful. My aim is to help you grow in your relationship - to move from a state of conflict, loneliness, unhappiness to healing and connection with your partner.

I hold an empathic and safe space for you to make sense of transitional life stages including young adulthood, parenthood, retirement, separation and grief. These rites of passage can feel overwhelming, exhausting, burdensome and uncertain. It can be a lonely time, but it does not have to be. Sessions with me are a time to pause, connect and unpack what you are carrying through the lens of an intergenerational, developmental, attachment-theory, trauma informed and interpersonal neurobiological process. I work in depth and relationally with clients who want to experience impactful and meaningful connection, support and healing.

Adoption Counsellors
In recent years, psychologists have begun to investigate how adopted children and their adoptive families navigate their lives together. In an attempt to help children who have been adopted adjust and thrive in a new home, and to understand why problems may arise, studies look at the genetic as well as both prenatal and postnatal environmental influences on the development of children who have been adopted.
