Trusting me with your patients is a big deal, so I’ve made a 3-minute video (below) to introduce myself, my style of therapy, and A Healing Place.

We are currently accepting referrals with a very short wait list of 1-3 weeks. We accept Medicare Mental Health Care plans. You are very welcome to call me directly to discuss current or prospective referrals: 0472 678 465.

What I can help you with

Clinical Psychologist with extensive training and experience

“I integrate evidence based therapies to effectively help your patients”

I typically assess patient’s difficulties psychodynamically, that is, I work to understand what unconscious coping mechanisms they may be using that are causing their current difficulties.

For example; maybe they learned to suppress anger when young because it wasn’t tolerated by their caregivers, and now they get depressed instead of angry. 

I then draw from various evidence based therapies including Intensive Short Term Dynamic Psychotherapy (ISTDP), Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing (EMDR), and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), to help the patient increase their insight into their own problems and the underlying causes, and to decide if they want to let go of them.

You’ll find me very available to talk about our shared clients.

The cost for your patients will be:

1st session: 110 minutes, $350 fee minus $137.05 medicare rebate (out of pocket cost $212.95).

Subsequent sessions: 50-55 minutes, $250 fee minus $137.05 medicare rebate (out of pocket cost $112.95).


‘What is the problem you are seeking help with?’ Is the first question I will ask you. Good on you for seeking help.
