Legal / Court








My aim is to provide quality counselling by assisting people to in identify, understand, and learn to cope with difficulties in order to reduce associated distress. I provide evidence-based treatment, working in a collaborative manner, focussing on strengths and setting realistic goals, with the overall aim of developing a treatment plan that best suits individual needs.

I have over fourteen years’ experience working as a clinical psychologist, with 10 of these working in major public teaching hospitals in both clinical and senior management roles. I have treated people both individually and in groups for a variety of problems including depression, anxiety, OCD, and addictive disorders. My experience has included the development and provision of training programs for student psychologists, clinical psychologists, counsellors, and other health professionals. I hold a Master’s degree in Clinical Psychology and my professional memberships and associations include the Australian Psychological Society College of Clinical Psychologists, Adjunct Fellow with the University Of Western Sydney School Of Psychology, and The Australian Centre for Addiction Research.

As a clinical psychologist, I am registered provider with Medicare, WorkCover, and major health care funds. Clients are eligible for Medicare rebates if referred under a GP Mental Health Treatment Plan, prepared by a GP, Psychiatrist, or Paediatrician under the Governments 'Better Access to Mental Health' initiative. Bulk Billing services are available - generally clients referred by their GP can be bulk billed (no out of pocket) if on a pension or receiving unemployed benefits.
