I am a clinical psychologist with over 10 years’ experience in the CDHB in both child and adolescent services and adult specialist services. My specialty is perinatal mental health, working with prenatal and postnatal parents, with birth trauma, attachment concerns, parenting, and relationship changes associated with parenthood.

Trauma, mood and anxiety difficulties, emotion regulation, stress and burn out, grief / loss, and life transitions, relationship difficulties and skills, are all areas I offer support with. I work with individuals and couples, providing psychological assessment, treatment planning, brief and long-term therapy.

Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Dialectical Behaviour Therapy Skills (DBT skills), and Compassion Focused Therapy are my preferred modalities. I believe that a good fit and authentic connection with your therapist is strongly predictive of how effective intervention is, and to that end, focus on developing a sound therapeutic relationship.
