Children and Young People 

I work with children, teenagers (and their parents) on the following: 

  • Sleep problems

  • Challenging behaviour 

  • Emotional reactivity 

  • Trauma 

  • ADHD 

  • Enhancing the child-parent bond 

In addition, I work with teenagers (and at times their parents) on the following: 

  • Academic stress 

  • Social stress 

  • Reducing screen time 

  • Self-harm and suicidality 

  • Emerging sexuality and associated concerns

  • Emerging or diagnosed mental illness 

*I welcome working with children and teens with disabilities of any severity.

 

I also offer a number of skill-enhancing set programs which are run over 8 sessions. To read more about them, click here.  

Experience: 

My most recent position in Australia was as the Senior Psychologist for headspace, Bondi Junction, a youth mental health service with over 45 clinicians including psychologists, psychiatrists, general practitioners (doctors), exercise physiology and a sexual health clinic. 

Prior to this I have had extensive experience in child behaviour support. After registering as a psychologist I completed an additional two years of training in the Neurosequential Model of Therapeutics through the Child Trauma Academy, an attachment-based biopsychosocial model for understand early childhood development. I have worked with countless parents, foster carers, social workers and teachers in coming together to create an environment in which a troubled child or teen feels emotionally safe, learns new skills and can begin to thrive.
