She is currently a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the Parenting and Family Support Centre of the School of Psychology at the University of Queensland. Her research focuses on how to engage parents in the early stages of parenting programs. She is also interested in research in the areas of mental health and trauma.
I truly believe that people face challenges in their daily lives, but they have the resources to overcome them. As a clinical psychologist, I am available to support them through their process of change. I believe that when people access appropriate support when needed, we can prevent later issues. The key is how we stay mentally healthy.
She has experience working with a wide range of mental health presentations, such as depression, anxiety, behavioural issues, and traumatic stress. She has worked with children, teenagers, adults, and older people.
