My particular focus in therapy is collaboration with the person. It would be an honour and a privilege to have you share your story with me.

I'm a therapist who brings a warm, collaborative, and engaged approach to working with adolescents, adults, couples, and therapists seeking therapy. I can assist with a wide range of issues including depression, anxiety, relationship and social issues, behavioural difficulties, ADHD, body image and eating issues, trauma, PTSD, and perinatal mental health issues.

I am honoured and privileged to be the 2017 APS Women and Psychology Elaine Dignan Award Winner for my career-long work with women and girls.

 

My Approach and Experience

Counselling, Psychotherapy, & Feedback in Treatment.

I use a variety of evidenced based practices in my collaborative and feedback informed treatment approach including Solution Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT), Narrative Therapy, and Interpersonal Therapy (IPT). I act from a genuine place of curiosity about your experiences and will tailor the work to meet your needs.

Feedback in Treatment (FIT)

I work a little differently than some psychologists. I actively seek your feedback in sessions to inform your treatment process. I hope to assist in empowering you to have a voice in your experience in the therapeutic process, our working relationship, and your overall wellbeing. I am a certified FIT practitioner and trainer.

 

Since 1998 I have worked in both the U.S. and Australia in community mental health, hospitals, juvenile justice, university counselling, child and family services, and lectured/trained clinical and counselling psychologists in postgraduate programs. I am an adjunct Lecturer at La Trobe Univesity and I train and supervise clinical, counselling, and general psychologists at all stages of their careers. (at River City Reflections).
