I am a Registered Psychologist, working in private practice in Mount Lawley, Perth. I work with adults and young adults from diverse cultural backgrounds experiencing a variety of mental health concerns.

Before entering into the profession, I worked in South Africa in tertiary education, within the performing arts sector, and as a journalist. As a writer, I cut my teeth in the field by writing a series of non-fiction short stories about mental illness and people living with mental health issues. This experience solidified my interest in pursuing a career in mental healthcare. 

I have a special interest in working with people affected by trauma, adults with ADHD, especially those 


diagnosed in adulthood, as well as clients with dual or complex diagnoses.

Having briefly studied medicine before finally entering my professional psychology training, I maintain a keen interest in how physical health affects our mental health, including the effects of medication, nutrition, sleep, hormones, pain, and chronic illness on our mental health, and reciprocally, how the brain and mental illness affects our bodies.

"It's the relationship that heals." 

– Irvin Yalom

In addition to these special interests, I have experience working with various other mental health diagnoses, including mood and anxiety disorders, insomnia, grief and loss, interpersonal concerns, career change, stress and burnout, communication problems, binge-eating, abuse, and chronic fatigue.

I eclectically incorporate various treatment models to further support clients in both short- and long-term treatment. Interventions I draw on most frequently are Cognitive-Behavioural Therapy, EMDR, Metacognitive Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Interpersonal Therapy, Emotion-Focused Therapy, and values-based work.

I use my down-to-earth style to connect authentically with my clients. I find that building a mutually trusting, collaborative relationship with clients is one of the most important factors in therapy outcomes, so I dedicate time to understanding each client and their individual circumstances. I believe strongly that it is the relationship between therapist and client that heals, as it provides the basis for the therapeutically corrective experience, and my process-oriented approach to therapy reflects this.
