About

I am a Clinical Psychologist, working with adults, in private practice via telehealth (video call or telephone - Australia wide) and in person in the Melbourne suburb of Eltham. My approach is gentle, positive, open minded and holistic. The practice aims to offer a safe, respectful and non-judgmental space to talk through private concerns and help identify strategies for improved well-being.

 

I am trained in a range of scientifically supported therapies including Schema Therapy, EMDR, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT). I really enjoy Schema Therapy and EMDR, as they allow us to go a little deeper and gently address unresolved past distress, that may influence current experiences and underlying beliefs. This may be especially relevant if other psychological approaches have not worked so well or if there is past trauma that you wish to address.  

I am a Board Approved Supervisor and offer supervision for graduate psychologists.

Some of the areas I may be able to assist with include:

  • Depression and/or anxiety

  • Stress and/or burn out

  • Difficulty coping with a whole range of different life challenges and changes

  • Adult ADHD and/or Autism Assessments

  • Offering neuro-affirming support to adults who identify as ADHD'ers, Autistic or both. As well as anyone curious about whether they might be neurodivergent (e.g. Autism and/or ADHD).

  • Grief and loss 

  • Relationship problems including break ups and divorce

  • PTSD and unresolved childhood trauma

  • Physical and chronic health issues

  • Psycho-oncology (cancer support)

  • High personal sensitivity

  • Support during the perinatal period

  • Infertility and IVF

  • Work, study or career concerns

  • Spiritual, existential concerns

I've been working as a psychologist since 2009 and have worked in community based mental health and hospital settings for over 30 years (starting off my career as a registered nurse). 

I can offer telehealth (video call or telephone) and/or office based appointments. If you want to know more about telehealth or office based appointment options, including location, please click here.
