About me

I have been working therapeutically with patients for more than 26 years and since the time I completed my undergraduate degree in Psychology in 1983. I have worked in the capacity of: a Rehabilitation Counsellor with the Commonwealth Rehabilitation Services; then, as a Drug & Alcohol/Methadone Assessor with the Department of Corrective Services. I have been working as a Generalist, Counselling, and Clinical Psychologist since 1989 offering a range of services listed on this Website.

I am trained as a Marital/Couples & Family Therapist and have been working with couples and families since 1991. I am trained in Clinical/Applied Hypnosis and have been using Clinical Hypnosis as an adjunct treatment for many Psychological Problems. I conduct assessments including psychometric testing and personality assessments. I offer personal individual psychotherapy.

I treat my patients with respect: I am attentive, empathic, and always attempt to match therapy with the patients’ presenting problems. I am committed to evidence-based practice with a goal of enhancing patients’ wellbeing and adjustment to everyday life.

Please do not hesitate to call or email me to discuss the range of services and approaches I use in working with individuals, couples, and families.
