I am a psychotherapist and Registered Psychologist with over 23 years clinical experience. In addition to individual psychotherapy I also work in the areas of perinatal, child and adolescent, parents and couples.
I am deeply committed to supporting infants and parents from the planning of conception through pregnancy and during the postnatal period. I enjoy working with parents to enhance the bond with their infant and/or to scaffold a path to a more joyous and confident experience of parenting and family life.
I have a keen interest in working with children, adolescents and parents to facilitate healthy development and navigate difficulties. I offer individuals and couples the important process of deepening their relationships with themselves, others and their lives.
Additionally, I provide clinical supervision and mentoring to individuals wanting to develop themselves professionally and personally.

Practices and/or strategies may be identified to assist the process.
Since 1998 I have worked in various organisations including: Northern Centre Against Sexual Assault (Melbourne), Royal Women's Hospital (Melb), Melbourne IVF, Sydney IVF (Lismore), Centre Against Sexual Assault (Lismore). And, I have worked in private practice since 2006.
Appointments are available Tuesday to Thursdays each week.
