I am a clinical psychologist in the Northern Suburbs and my practice forms part of a multidisciplinary team of Occupational therapist, speech therapist and social workers.

I offer a supportive and safe therapeutic space for adults, adolescents, children and families. I offer both long and short term psychotherapy and assessments  for a broad range of difficulties.

I work from a variety of therapeutic perspectives – including cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), psychodynamic and play therapy. My approach is to treat therapy holistically and is tailored to each individual’s unique needs.
