I am a fully registered Psychologist with over 18 years experience practice. I have been practicing as a psychologist at the Banyo Clinic since 1996, and specialize in treating anxiety, trauma, depression and stress management. My goal is to assist clients to resolve these issues, feel strong and able to make choices in their lives.

My hours of practice are flexible and appointments range from 8:15am to 6:00pm from Wednesday to Friday and Saturday mornings.
I aim to keep my fees affordable and will bulk bill pensioners who have received a mental health plan from their GP.
