I occupy various roles, and I love them all.
I’m a psychologist who has studied neuroscience, generalist psychology, and educational and developmental psychology. I have a broad competency base to work with a wide range of clients and issues. I can help with problems such as depression, anxiety, emotion management, parenting difficulties, behaviour management, social skills, bullying (school and work), work-life balance and workplace distress, relationship problems, and coping with chronic medical complaints and/or aging. I opened my own practice recently, Zenith Psychology in Doncaster East.
I’m a researcher who delights in learning and discovering patterns. Since 2011, I’ve been project managing the Principal Health and Wellbeing international, longitudinal, annual surveys. I’m great at thinking about large, complex datasets and understanding how to plan for them and work with them effectively. I really do like research and am productively pedantic about data collection. On the side, I run a survey hosting service with my husband and together we’ve worked on multiple projects for Universities around the world. I’ve also helped out teaching a psychological assessment subject in the Master of Professional Psychology course at Monash University.
I’m an explorer, a mother, a wife, a daughter, a friend and a lifelong learner. I enjoy reading, dining, skiing, beaching, and gobbling up life. I love navy blue and purple, sunlight and velvet, ocean waves and ancient rocks, stars and rainbows, hydrangeas and lisianthuses, and fantastical beasts and roller-coasters 🙂
