Outline of Treatment approach
Hello, I'm Dr Melissa, a highly qualified and experienced clinical psychologist with a warm, kind, empathic, and nurturing therapeutic style. I work with children (5 years and older), adolescents and adults.

I have a strong interest and focus on the anxiety disorders in my practice including generalised anxiety, panic disorder, perinatal and postnatal anxiety, social phobia, PTSD and separation anxiety.

My other areas of expertise include major depression, post natal depression, eating disorders, grief and loss, as well as providing assistance with self esteem, assertiveness and anger management.

I am passionate about helping clients achieve their goals and resolve their symptoms and draw upon my skills in Cognitive Behaviour Therapy, Acceptance & Commitment Therapy, Interpersonal Psychotherapy, Mindfulness and Solution Focused Therapy in order to do so.

I have over 15 years of experience as a clinical psychologist and in addition to my clinical work I am also a writer/columnist for Kidspot.com.au and a media commentator. I have had the pleasure of appearing as an expert psychologist on a variety of programs such as The Project, Studio 10, Today Extra, The House of Wellness, Sunrise & The Morning Show.

In addition to standard private practice appointments, I also offer Skype / Telehealth Services to clients in MMM 4-7 as well as an IN HOME PERINATAL & POSTNATAL PROGRAM for clients with a perinatal or postnatal mental health condition residing in the surrounding suburbs of Prahran, Malvern, South Yarra & Richmond.

Please do get in touch if you have any queries - I look forward to hearing from you!
