Outline of Treatment approach
I am a clinical psychologist passionate about treating anxiety disorders (and stress aggravated medical conditions such as irritable bowel syndrome) and thus have worked primarily in anxiety conditions for approximately 25 years.

I am also interested in counselling re issues around being single, dating and relationships and used to contribute columns to The Age newspapers, 'Singles File'.

I offer cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) and meta cognitive therapy.

I studied clinical psychology at the University of Melbourne and have been working as a psychologist since 1994. I have worked in public and private hospitals, and a community mental health clinic as well as my own private practice.

My work with anxiety sufferers has been featured in the electronic and print media including publications such as: 'The Age', 'The Australian', 'The Herald-Sun', 'For Me' magazine,'Woman's Day"', "New Idea' & 'The War Cry'. I used to do a psychology segment on a program called 'Midlife Crisis' on radio station 3RRR. I have also appeared on 'The 7PM Report' &'Sunrise' amongst other media interviews.

I aim to equip people with the skills to manage stress and overcome anxiety. I believe in people being active participants in their own recovery and that is my role to help you improve as quickly as possible using: relaxation techniques, CBT self help manuals, appropriate diet and exercise and lifestyle changes.

I use evidence based approaches and regularly monitor progress with questionnaires. I believe in multi-disciplinary care where needed, and will refer you on to appropriate specialists if I feel they have something to contribute to your well being.

I believe in everyone being able to access psychological care so small business owners and health card concession holders are bulk billed for their face to face sessions as well as their telehealth sessions. Workcover and TAC clients are most welcome.
