I have been working as a Clinical Psychologist for 20+ years. I have a passion for assisting people to become their best self. Whether that means overcoming a clinical problem, working in the high-performance space of sport, the arts or business, or life in general. I undertake regular professional development training to ensure I am up to date with the latest in research and treatment.

Hold a Doctorate Degree in Psychology

My approach is to work collaboratively with my clients to assist them to discover what they really want out of life and to gain freedom from what holds them back. I assist people to develop a more robust sense of self and help them understand and manage mindset in times of both challenge and opportunity.
SPORT & HIGH PERFORMANCE
Complementing my focus on sport and high performance I am also a qualified personal trainer and fitness coach (Cert III & IV in Fitness). I have a strong interest in physical activity, nutrition, and the associated benefits with mental health. I regularly attend professional development in these areas, and they typically form part of my discussion with clients.
Early in my career I worked in public mental health services including community, residential, crisis, and eating disorder services. I then established a group private practice known as Positive Outcomes of which I was the Director for 15 years. I have also previously worked as a Performance Psychologist at the Victorian Institute of Sport. I now work as an independent private practitioner.
