About

I am an compassionate and supportive clinician providing coaching and therapy tailored to your individual needs. I take a collaborative approach, working with you to identify your strengths and achieve your goals. My experience is primarily with neurodivergent young people and adults experiencing anxiety, depression, trauma, relationship difficulties and chronic pain. I use a range of evidence-based therapies adapted to the unique difficulties of those on the spectrum and with ADHD. My work is trauma-informed and utilizes principles drawn from attachment theory and polyvagal theory.
As someone with both advanced clinical training in neuropsychology and lived experience of neurodivergence, I bring a wealth of skill and understanding to my work. I help clients to regulate their emotions; manage anxiety; improve social skills; get and stay organized; and to develop greater self-understanding.
I am available for Telehealth appointments only. Clients with a Mental Health Care Plan and referral from their GP are eligible for Medicare rebates of $88.25 per session.
