Background

I am a registered Clinical Psychologist and Neuropsychologist, and a member of the NZ College of Clinical Psychologists (NZCCP), as well as a member of New Zealand Psychologists for Older Adults (NZPOPS). I spend most of my time working for Waitemata DHB both in inpatient and outpatient settings, but also have one day a week working in private practice. I also provide clinical supervision.

Qualifications

BSc (Hons), Psychology (Massey)
Doctor of Clinical Psychology (Massey)

Approach and Specialisations

I provide compassionate evidence-based psychology services which include assessment, diagnosis, and treatment for adults and older adults who are experiencing emotional or mental health difficulties. These difficulties may include (but not limited to):

  1. Depression
  2. Anxiety/Worry/Stress
  3. Panic Attacks
  4. Phobias
  5. Acute and Post-Traumatic Stress (PTSD)
  6. Loss and Grief
  7. Managing emotional challenges which life sometimes throws our way.
  8. Neuropsychological Assessments

My approach is guided by Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT), as well as Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) based therapy. The first session typically involves an assessment where we work together to define the difficulties you’re facing, and then create goals for treatment. The subsequent sessions involve therapeutic work to achieve these goals.

Fees

Fees are $190 for a 55-minute session and is payable after each session through cash, cheque, or by bank transfer. There is no charge if you cancel an appointment 24 hours or more prior to the scheduled time. Otherwise, a 50% fee may apply with cancellations less than 24 hours notice, and the full fee may apply for failure to attend with no notice given.

To make an initial appointment, drop me an email, a text, or phone me. If I am unable to answer your call please leave a message and I will call you back as soon as I can. At present I am available on Monday mornings from 8am to noon, and at other times by arrangement.
