I am a clinical psychologist and psychotherapist in private practice and a member of the College of Clinical Psychologists. I have a Master of Clinical Psychology from Macquarie University and a Graduate Certificate in Human Services (Family Therapy) from The University of Queensland. I bring a systemic focus to my clinical work with clients. Prior to becoming a psychologist and psychotherapist I completed a Bachelor of Economics at The University of Sydney and worked for several years in corporate finance and management accounting.

In addition to training in clinical psychology and systemic therapies, my approach to psychotherapy is informed by several modalities and perspectives. I am an Internationally Endorsed Schema Therapist and a Certified Advanced Practitioner of Sensorimotor Psychotherapy. I completed the advanced training in sensorimotor psychotherapy in Los Angeles, which was facilitated directly by both Pat Ogden and Kekuni Minton. Occasionally I assist in training Australian mental health professionals in Sensorimotor Psychotherapy. I also provide consultation to therapists training in sensorimotor psychotherapy. Both modalities of evidenced based therapy are ideally suited to long term problems, recurring difficulties, and psychological trauma. I have also completed Janina Fisher’s advanced training in Complex Trauma and Dissociation in London, and later assisted at the same Complex Trauma and Dissociation training in San Francisco. 

In early 2022 I completed training in Compassionate Inquiry, which is based on the work of Dr Gabor Maté.  I currently intern as a facilitator for two international training cohorts in this approach to healing from attachment trauma and addiction.
