I completed my Masters of Clinical Psychology at the University of Melbourne March 2020, and am registered with AHPRA as a Clinical Psychologist. I love the challenge of formulating for each individual client, and adapting this formulation (and treatment plan) over time as one's presentation or circumstance changes. I am passionate about working alongside clients to help them improve their quality of life, and particularly in empowering clients in their ability to cope with psychosocial stressors. Change is hard; clients do not need to be 100% motivated 100% of the time; but they need to want to want to be motivated some of the time

I have a special interest in the treatment of trauma, in all its forms. This includes working with PTSD, Complex PTSD, sexual abuse/assault, attachment/relationship issues including family violence/neglect/abandonment; and mood, anxiety and somatic disorders. I believe in a safe, non-judgemental approach where we work together to identify what you are wanting to change and how to go about it, in the least distressing and most effective way possible. I am particularly interested in the use of EMDR, a broad psycho-therapeutic and empirically validated treatment approach for a variety of issues, that can facilitate profound healing.

I feel passionate about helping people make meaningful, sustainable, and healthy changes in their lives. I aim to work respectfully and collaboratively with people so that clients build their own independence and develop ways to manage life stressors more effectively, in addition to their own thoughts, feelings and behaviours. A comfortable, empathetic and supportive therapeutic relationship is also very important in my approach, and research shows that this is essential in best outcomes for clients. I generally work on a wide range of mental health and life issues and the approaches I work with are all evidence-based interventions.

What type of mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist, psychologist, or counsellor, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.

How to find a therapist or counsellor in Saint Kilda?
When looking to find a therapist, start by considering training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Psychologists in Saint Kilda specialise in therapeutic approaches such as CBT, EMDR, and Interpersonal Therapy (IPT), among others. Finding a psychologist or counsellor who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

Can I afford counselling?
Yes. Most counsellors offer reasonable rates or will work on a sliding scale basis. Many accept health insurance. Feel free to discuss this when you contact the counsellor.
