I have been working as a Clinical Psychologist in a variety of settings for over 20 years. I enjoy working therapeutically with children, young people and adults. I believe that psychotherapy and the psychotherapeutic relationship provide a unique space to support self understanding and transformation that can make a significant difference to quality of life. I am interested in helping people to make sense and meaning of their emotional experiences in ways that support them through various life stages and the various difficulties that bring them to therapy. I draw upon a variety of therapeutic frameworks including systemic, developmental, psychodynamic, neurodevelopment, trauma informed and cognitive behavioural.

In addition to work as a psychotherapist, I have worked for a number of years with Aboriginal Community Controlled Health Services and continue to engage in this work with Social and Emotional Wellbeing programs and the staff within. I continue to be challenged and inspired by the complexities of working across different cultures and beliefs systems. My ongoing engagement in this work continues to deepen my appreciation of the importance of systemic, culturally sensitive and trauma informed understandings and ways of working.
