Clinical Psychology Practice

When people come to therapy, they often describe a number of symptoms that have decreased their enjoyment of life, and ways that they feel confused or overwhelmed. My aim is to help people express themselves and, through speaking and being heard, to develop a greater knowledge of who they are and what gives their life meaning.

My approach emphasises curiosity and being open to what emerges when we shift from seeing ourselves as a “self-improvement project”, to an individual who has particular inheritances, life experiences, limitations and gifts that can be recognised and translated into actions that change habitual responses. It is my intention that therapy becomes a creative space to be heard and witnessed, encouraged and challenged.

My approach to psychotherapy is informed by psychoanalysis, particularly the work of Freud and Lacan. I am a member of the Freudian School of Melbourne. I value patience, kindness, and attention to detail.

I have also completed training in other therapeutic approaches, such as cognitive behavioural therapy, compassion-focused therapy, narrative therapy, and internal family systems therapy. I utilise these other approaches in my work when psychoanalytic therapy is not suitable. I can also offer referral to another practitioner or service if indicated.

I am registered with AHPRA and endorsed as a Clinical Psychologist, as well as a member of the Australian Psychological Society. I have completed the following tertiary qualifications: Bachelor of Arts/Bachelor of Commerce (University of Melbourne); Bachelor of Arts Honours – Psychology (Swinburne University); Doctorate of Psychology – Clinical Psychology (Swinburne University).


Supervision is essential for self-reflection, learning, and growth in professional practice. I am an acredited supervisor, registered with AHPRA, and able to provide supervision for: provisional psychologists 5+1 programs, Clinical Psychology Registrars, and registered psychologists or counsellors who wish to have a space to reflect on and discuss their work with clients.

I aim to foster a trusting relationship in which the supervisee can feel can be supported and able to discuss their work openly. I encourage supervisees to develop their own voice, integrating their knowledge of theory and practice with their own approach, experiences, and personality. It is my intention that the work done in supervision translates to therapy practice that is present, creative and effective.
