BSocSc. (Psych Hons)
I am an experienced psychologist who joined the Merimbula Psychology team in 2021, having practiced therapeutically in the Bega Valley for the past seven years (Community Mental Health and privately). I work with a diverse range of clients: children, adults, families, parents, and couples.
I have training in a variety of therapeutic approaches which I draw upon to address and relieve symptoms, manage and regulate emotions, improve relationships, develop insight and self-awareness, and face life stressors.
I will work with specific, short term issues and interventions, or over the longer term to deal with chronic difficulties and patterns. As a rural psychologist, I have a breadth of experience, and will work with a diverse range of issues and mental health disorders, however I do have a particular interest in Eating Disorders, Personality Disorders, and trauma.
I have training and experience in the following therapeutic approaches: Cognitive-Behavioural Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Dialectical Behaviour Therapy, Schema Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, Brief Psychodynamic Psychotherapy, Family Based Therapy and CBT-Enhanced for Eating Disorders.
