I have Bachelors, Honours and Masters degrees in Science (Psychology) and a Postgraduate Diploma in Clinical Psychology from Victoria University in Wellington, New Zealand. I have worked with children, adolescents, families and adults in a variety of different agencies and settings.
I have experience helping those who are struggling with various conditions (e.g. low mood, depression, anxieties, illnesses) or life difficulties (e.g. separation, divorce, adjustment, crisis, trauma, stress and managing difficult life events).
Majority of my week is spent in an advisor role at ACC. However, within my private practice, I hold a various contracts to provide psychological services and clinical/professional supervision. I also accept referrals from private clients who wish to self-refer. I typically carry a full caseload, although, I have spaces that open up every 3-6 weeks.
I have a solid foundation in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) for adults and young people, Dialectical Behavioural Therapy (DBT), Acceptance & Commitment Therapy (ACT) and Motivational Interviewing (MI).
