BA Psych (Hons), Approved ACFED, Cert CBT, Dip Linguistics, Cert III Fitness
Registered Psychologist

For as long as I can remember, I have had a passion for helping people be the best version of themselves. Through my own life experiences, I have come to understand that our strengths come from the moments in life when we feel the weakest. Working as a Psychologist, I put the knowledge gained from these past experiences into practice and work with individuals to break through their barriers, and provide individuals with the right tools to succeed in their own wellbeing journey.

I am a registered General Psychologist with the Australian Health Practitioners Regulation Agency and an approved member of the Australian Centre for Eating Disorders (ACFED). I have previous experience working in private practice and in correctional settings treating individuals at all stages of adulthood with a wide range of mental health presentations. Working in the fitness industry for years, my strengths lay in the ability to motivate people and understand the relationship between psychological and physical wellbeing.

I take a collaborative approach in the healing journey which is guided by the individual’s needs and treatment goals. I draw on multiple frameworks including but not limited to CBT, DBT, ACT, Mindfulness, and motivational approaches. I see clients from ages 17 and older, my interests include, but are not limited to

  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Disordered eating
  • Emotional dysregulation
  • Substance abuse (and other self-harm behaviours)
  • Trauma related disorders
  • Adjustment disorders
  • Stress related disorders
