I am a registered psychologist with more than 10 years of experience working with youth, adults, and older adults with different concerns, such as:

  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder, including Complex Trauma and dissociative identity disorder (DID)
  • Phobia
  • ASD
  • ADHD
  • Adult survivor of sexual abuse
  • Domestic violence (Survivor / Perpetrator)
  • Chronic Pain
  • Substance use
  • School bullying
  • Workplace bullying
  • Personality disorders including Borderline Personality Disorder
  • Eating disorders

Early in my career, I worked in community mental health settings, where I treated adults experiencing a broad range of mental health issues including anxiety, depression, obsessive compulsive disorder, schizophrenia, bipolar disorder and personality disorders.

I later worked in a public hospital with clients who had acquired brain injury, trauma, chronic pain, grief and loss issues, and behavioural management problems.

After relocating to Australia, I worked in the community mental health setting and subsequently in the alcohol and other drugs (AOD) setting, where I worked with clients experiencing addiction substance dependence in addition to a range of complex mental health issues.

In my work with clients, I use a person-centered approach and work collaboratively with clients to achieve their goals. I utilise a range of evidence-based treatments including Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Solution-focused Brief Therapy (SFBT), Schema Therapy, and Eye Movement Desensitisation Reprocessing (EMDR).

In my free time, I enjoy listening to music and reading. I also enjoy hunting for good food with my wife and three children.
