My other interests include teaching and training, and I have several years of experience working in the tertiary education system. I am a board-approved supervisor in psychology and particularly enjoy providing supervision for training psychologists.

I have an eclectic therapeutic approach, drawing from a range of intervention modes including Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Motivational Interviewing (MI), Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing (EMDR), and Solution-focused Therapy (SFT).
I am a registered psychologist with experience in the forensic and non-forensic space in both assessment and treatment. I have a warm and empathic approach and am committed to supporting clients to play an active role in their own path towards growth. I have a comprehensive understanding of assessment, and believe that a thorough assessment is essential to developing a unique treatment plan based on the individual. I provide assessments relating to mental health, cognitive ability and memory.
