About

I work mainly with adults whose stress, anxiety and depression is causing unmanageable levels of suffering in their lives. My focus is to build your understanding of the causes of this distress and work to equip you with ways to better manage and feel better. The guiding principle in my work is to support individuals to find ways to suffer less and flourish more. Therapeutic approaches include: Mindfulness-based cognitive therapy (MBCT); Mindfulness-based stress reduction (MBSR); Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT); Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT); Interpersonal psychotherapy (IPT)
I have worked as a clinical psychologist for over fourteen years, both in private practice and in community health settings. I have experience in a range of evidence-based mindfulness interventions, cognitive behaviour therapy, interpersonal therapy, existential & nature based therapy. I have a warm, compassionate and non-judgmental approach.
In my personal time I love to garden and to get into nature. I also love AFL, running, yoga and meditation. I have a young family.
