MAPS, MCCLP, Clinical Member AAFT
I am a Clinical Psychologist and Clinical Family Therapist working with clients since 2002.
I first started working in Child and Youth Mental Health on the Gold Coast which led to my interest in working with families. This interest has since turned into my passion, and I love having the opportunity to work with anyone who values "relationships". Whether it's individuals, couples or families, my therapy approach focuses on the stress or strength in a relationship. I'm often helping people work through past relationship issues that continue to affect them in the present.
My other area of passion is supporting professionals to deliver high quality and evidence based practice. This is often through supervision and mentoring, with individuals and mental health teams, and through delivering professional development workshops around Queensland. Just as clients need support, so do the professionals that are dedicating their careers to helping others. For professionals interested in Family Therapy training options, please consider my training company The Queensland Institute of Family Therapy (QIFT), a training institute for professionals in the helping profession.
I also deliver personal development classes, to enable everyone to understand themselves and their relationships on a deeper level, and learn skills for a greater positive well being.
Please note that I am unable to provide a crisis service to clients.
In the event of an emergency please contact Lifeline (13 11 14), call emergency services on 000, or present to your local Accident and Emergency Department for support.
