I love all things wellbeing and family.  

This means I love to support individuals, couples, and families of all constellations.

As a Clinical Family Therapist and Psychologist, I work with a range of clients and situations:

  • Stress 

  • Coping with Challenges in Life e.g., Bullying, Peer Relationships

  • Coping with Changes in Life e.g., developmental transitions (becoming a couple, starting a family, young children, teenage years), family transitions (separation, blended families)

  • Anxiety

  • Depression

  •  Trauma experiences and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder

  • Grief and Loss

  • Relationship Difficulties - Couples, Parent-Child, and Families

  • Self Esteem & Self Worth

  • Parenting

  • Behavioural Difficulties with children and teenagers

Everyone deserves the chance to focus on their wellbeing, as well as any challenges they may be facing.  Sometimes people like to do this individually, sometimes as a couple and sometimes as a family.

 

Helping individuals – children, teenagers, adults – supports their wellbeing and also the wellbeing of the family.  Relationships are so important and valuable…and also tricky at times so as a Family Therapist I also like to support couples and families.  Whether I am seeing an individual, couple or family, I am always thinking about people as belonging somewhere and as having strengths, resources and capacities that can be accessed on life's journey.

I am a registered practitioner with Medicare Australia and accept Better Access to Mental Health Care referrals from your General Practitioner (GP).  Under this initiative your doctor can create a treatment plan and you can claim for up to 10 sessions each calendar year with a mental health professional.

​Your private health fund may also give a rebate - please check with your private health fund prior to booking a consultation.

​​​​​​Cancellation of appointments require 24 hours notice.  Without 24 hours notice a fee of 50% of the booked consultation will be incurred.
