Parameters and Assessment

Once a client presents to me, the first few sessions are devoted to a thorough assessment and history. I then provide feedback about the direction of future sessions and, together with the client, create a plan for the time here.

Every client is assessed individually and then given feedback so they clearly understand the commitment and direction of therapy.


I have worked in both the public and the private sector for over 20 years. I have worked in both male and female prisons, with gamblers, adolescents and children, families, family court matters, post cancer surgery (both male and female), mother/infant issues, marital conflict and lifestyle challenges.

I have experience working with children, adolescents and families and am also family therapy trained.

I have access to specialists and medical practitioners that are very resourceful and helpful in providing support regarding physical concerns that may be related to emotional worries.

I am also trained in analytic work.

I specialise in the following areas:

  • Dealing with cancer
  • Sexual difficulties & problems - male and female
  • Depression
  • Access disputes and access plans (family court work involving separation)
  • Family court reports
  • Adolescent challenges in families
  • Gambling
  • Individual therapy and seeking long-term insight or changes
  • Mother/infant needs in relation to marriage and family
  • Relationship challenges and conflicts
  • PTSD
  • Identity and gender concerns


I offer both Medicare and private health rebates.
