I am a registered Clinical Psychologist and my qualifications include a Bachelor of Commerce, Bachelor of Arts Criminology, Bachelor of Psychology (Honours) and a Masters of Clinical Psychology. I have a particular interest. in working with adults and adolescents who have experienced complex trauma throughout their lives and as such struggle with chronic and complex mental health issues, including anxiety, depression, drug and alcohol use and personality disorder issues. I have extensive experience working in the field of trauma and drug and alcohol, in both residential and non-residential settings. I also work with people dealing with a range of health issues, such as endometriosis, fibromyalgia, rheumatoid arthritis and digestive issues to assist them to better manage the symptoms that they experience on a day to day basis. I work collaboratively with clients and try to find the therapeutic approach that fits with their needs. I have experience working with a broad range of evidence based therapeutic approaches, including Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavioural Therapy (DBT), Interpersonal Therapy, Schema Therapy and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy frameworks (ACT). I have also completed training on CBT for tic disorders (CBIT; Cognitive Behavioural Intervention for Tics) which is an evidence-based program that provides skills for managing and reducing tics. I work towards educating clients to assist them to understand how experiences over a lifetime, influence their current way of being in the world and offer a range of practical strategies, aimed at arming them with the skills to move towards a healthy future self.
