|Bio:||I've practised for nearly 30 years, in a range of different settings and treatment areas: in outpatient mental health agencies, and in private practice. Prior to training in clinical psychology I worked as a speech language therapist. Currently I work with both assessment and treatment for mental injuries related to the impact of sexual abuse, other historic traumas, and physical injuries. Other areas of my work are with individuals, couples, and families where Autism Spectrum is experienced. I provide diagnostic assessments for this for adolescents and adults, and therapy for associated mood disorders. I meet with individuals wanting to deal with stress, anxiety and depression, including perinatal depression, and couples experiencing relationship difficulties.
I also provide supervision for colleagues and other allied health professionals.
