I'm a registered Psychologist with 10 years' experience in both public and private sectors.
I work with children, adolescents and adults to address issues related to trauma, attachment, behavioural difficulties, bereavement, depression and anxiety. I work within a non-judgmental framework to establish a collaborative therapeutic relationship with my clients. My approach is informed by my training in Acceptance and Commitment Therapy , Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing (EMDR), Relational Life Therapy (RLT) and Child Centred Play Therapy.
While talk is often the primary approach with adolescents and adults, I also have a play space for pre-school and school aged children (I see children from 3 years of age). In addition to direct client work, I offer parent training and consultation. I specialise in family relationships which includes individual, couples and family therapy.
Through my work in schools I have become familiar with the IEP process, and can offer advice regarding IEP development. In addition, I am available to consult with teachers and related service providers to coordinate therapeutic interventions and goals between school and home.
