She works with clients across the life-span including, children, adolescents and adults. When working with families with young children, Larney takes a family-centred approach to help children and families meet their personal goals.

In her approach Larney utilises evidence-based therapies including, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Dialectical Behaviour Therapy and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy. She takes a values-based approach with her clients and goals are client-centred. Further, she has experience in assessment and diagnosis of Autism Spectrum Disorder, Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder, Intellectual Disabilities, Functional Behaviour Assessments and other educational, behaviour and cognitive concerns.

Larney has nine years’ experience working across the life-span with Neurodiverse clients and their families. She has a particular interest in working with Neurodiverse clients, including females and clients with a PDA profile. Larney enjoys seeing her clients at the clinic with her therapy dog in training, Mako, but also loves supporting clients in their community. Larney also has experience supporting individuals across the life-span with anxiety disorders, emotional regulating difficulties, depression and more.

Larney and a co-facilitator (i.e. Dungeon Master) run a social group for Neurodivergent children/adolescents on Tuesday afternoons at the Mullum Road Clinic in Eltham. This group aims to provide children/adolescents with a supportive environment by engaging in a role play/table top game, to develop communication skills and build friendships.

In her spare time, Larney enjoys spending time with her family (including dog family) and friends. She loves Harry Potter, video games, table top games (including Dungeons and Dragons) and spending time outdoors.

Mako is a 1.5 year old Groodle who is currently training as a therapy dog, with his handler/Mum, Larney. Mako is full of love and energy. He loves treats, cuddles and walks. He can’t wait to meet all of his new friends at the Mullum Road Clinic in Eltham and Croydon.
