I am a clinical psychologist who has worked in the public and private sectors for over 15 years. Early in my career I worked as a research clinician for the Centre of Developmental Psychiatry & Psychology, Monash Medical Centre in Melbourne. The research programs compared cognitive behavour therapy with other treatments, psychological and psychopharmacological, for depression and co-morbid disorders. My work included providing assessment and treatment for children, adolescents and their families.
I later worked for the Peninsula Community Mental Health Service as a Primary Mental Health Clinician. My role included the provision of comprehensive assessment and recovery-based interventions to clients with low and high prevalence mental health disorders. Providing secondary consultation and education the General Practitioners and Allied Health Providers in Community Health Centres across the Peninsula was also a major role.
I currently work at the Mindfull Wellness Centre in Box Hill South. As a registered Medicare provider, I provide assessment and evidence-based treatments to clients who are referred by their General Practitioners under the Better Access to Mental Health Care Initiative or through other referral pathways.
