Mental Health Experience............ I have experience in adult community and child and adolescent public mental health. I continue to work at Monash Health (ELMHS) where I support children and teenagers who often present with very challenging and high risk difficulties. I have worked in Private Practice for a number of years.

 

Who do I treat?............ Children, adolescents, and adults

 

Areas of expertise........... Depression, anxiety and trauma, parenting, childhood emotional and behavioural difficulties, attention deficit/hyperactivity, grief and loss, and adjustment to change in life circumstances.

 

My therapy style............ I provide a safe, non-judgemental space so people can speak without fear during assessment and treatment. My work is done in partnership with clients within a trusting therapeutic relationship to understand the factors underlying their distress with the aim to achieve their desired goals. When working with children, I often find that the involvement of parents, schools and families in the treatment is vital to positive outcomes. I draw on a range of evidence based therapies depending upon each individual's circumstances. These include: Supportive psychotherapy for adults and adolescents, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Mindfulness and Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT) Dyadic Developmental Psychotherapy and Play Therapy.
