I am an experienced Clinical Psychologist and I have been successfully running my own private psychology practice for the past 6 years. Prior to this I worked in government run adult, child and adolescent inpatient and outpatient facilities. I have worked with a variety of clientele from many different backgrounds. I believe therapy allows us to learn psychological resources to find relief from distress, overcome challenges and live fulfilled and meaningful lives. The benefits of this process include the development of healthy and adaptive coping strategies, loving relationships, fulfilling and prosperous life experiences.

PLEASE NOTE I DO NOT OFFER MEDICARE REBATE SESSIONS. Life can feel like a roller coaster at times. You want to take charge of your life, but you don't know where to start. Panic, anxiety or numbness takes over your life, and you feel that no one understands you. You either get angry or shut down, neither of which help you get where you need to be. By working with me, you will gain greater understanding and awareness of your experiences and your emotions. I will help you be the driver of your life, together we will untangle the stuff that holds you back, keeps you stuck and feeling helpless.
