Amy is an AHPRA registered psychologist working predominantly with adolescents and adults. They have a Bachelor of Psychology (Honours) and a Master of Psychology (Clinical Psychology), and have experience in a variety of public and private psychology settings.
Their main areas of interest include sexuality and gender, trauma, anxiety and stress, sexual health or pain issues, communication, and relationship difficulties. As a non-binary therapist themselves, Amy is especially passionate about providing affirming psychological support for adolescents and adults in the LGBTQIA+ community.
They work from a variety of evidence-based modalities, including Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Schema Therapy, Cognitive Processing Therapy (CPT), Solution-Focused Therapy and more. They aim to be flexible in their process, adapting to the needs of each individual and honouring clients’ boundaries and wishes. Amy strives to create a safe and welcoming space for all; they are a sex-work and polyamory friendly practitioner, with experience working collaboratively with broader health teams for people with chronic health conditions.
While Amy does have a gorgeous little dog at home, at 14 years of age he too settled into his retiree lifestyle to start a new career in therapy. However, Amy does hope to get involved with animal assisted therapies alongside some more unusual pets in the future.
