Psychologist/Clinical Psychology Registrar
I use a range of evidence based techniques to relieve symptoms, resolve problems, and build psychological resilience. I have a particular interest in treating anxiety, depression, obsessive-compulsive and stress-related disorders, as well as difficulties with self-esteem. I see each client and story as unique, and will work carefully with you to gain clarity and figure out a treatment plan that best suits your individual needs. Outside work, I mostly focus on trying to wear out my energetic young children.
