Stephanie is a warm, open, and compassionate registered psychologist, who is highly focused on delivering a client-centred approach to therapy. She is committed to adopting evidence-based interventions to facilitate a collaborative therapeutic relationship in pursuance of best therapy outcomes for her clients.
Stephanie completed her education at Macquarie University, graduating with a Bachelor of Psychology. Since then, she has worked in various settings, including private practice, not-for-profit organisations and school settings. She has worked with culturally diverse individuals and groups across the lifespan, with a range of cognitive, emotional and interpersonal issues.
She believes identifying protective factors is crucial to the achievement of positive mental health, and the provision of therapy to young people can assist in emotional regulation and building resilience, and in turn prevent or minimise the long-standing issues so many adults face today.
Stephanie has extensive experience in psychometric assessment and reporting, and assisting children, adolescents, and their families with developmental, behavioural, learning and other issues such as ADHD, anxiety, depression, school refusal, emotional regulation, social skills, self-esteem and anger management. She also has a wealth of experience in working with adults and elderly clients who live with a range of issues, including depression, anxiety, mood, stress, adjustment difficulties, PTSD, schizophrenia, addiction, loss and grief, and suicide bereavement.
Stephanie utilises a range of therapeutic interventions including Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, mindfulness-based therapies, play therapy, motivational interviewing, and solution-focused therapy, to help individuals achieve their goals. She is also proficient in English and Spanish.
