ABOUT ME 

I have extensive experience in child, adolescent, and family psychology, both in public and private settings. I am a Board-approved Supervisor and have over 25 years’ experience lecturing and supervising Clinical Psychology Masters’ students at university. At The Practice I will be providing specialist psychology services in three areas, cognitive and educational assessment, paediatric enuresis management and preschool social, emotional and behavioural issues.   

HOW WILL I HELP YOU 

I will provide a welcoming and supportive environment and collaborate with you to ensure your concerns about your child are answered. I use a strengths-based approach ensuring children are supported and encouraged for their strengths rather than viewed by difficulties and challenges. All individually-tailored assessments and treatments are evidence-based practice to achieve the best possible outcomes for child, parent and family.
