Why Choose Core Life

Carlton Psychologist: I Help People to Unlock Defences and Work Towards their Potential.

As a Carlton psychologist, I specialize in assisting people to work through anxiety, depression, trauma, eating disorders, complex attachment patterns, and more. In particular, I am passionate about assisting people to access greater security, resilience, worth, vitality, and agency.

I believe each person’s mental well-being is important and deserves the appropriate care, focus, and attention to maintain. Furthermore, I firmly believe we are all able to change, grow, and live more fulfilling lives. With that, I am committed to supporting the people I connect with on their journey towards healing and personal growth.

My Approach

In practice, I work to provide a consistent, engaged, and genuine therapy that has your back. Importantly, I aim to create a safe, empathetic and non-judgmental environment where you can explore your concerns. In each session, I assist people to connect and unlock emotionally, target the core themes that need attention, and find pathways towards positive change and transformation. Overall, I work for those moments when a person truly experiences something new, corrective, and affirming.

Drawing upon evidence-based treatment models, I collaborate closely with people to construct an effective treatment that can help guide them towards a better life. So, if you’re looking for an experienced Carlton psychologist who genuinely cares about your well-being, please don’t hesitate to reach out to me on 0451 491395.

My Background

My journey in psychology has been one of unwavering passion. Since reading the likes of Tony Robbins and the Road Less Travelled back in high school I have always been interested in well-being. This interest propelled me to complete both a PhD in psychology and a postgraduate diploma in clinical psychology. Through my training and experiences, I have honed my ability to deeply connect with my therapy clients and provide them with the authentic support they need to grow and heal. In particular, I’ve explored various treatment models and theories with esteemed clinicians and researchers, undertaking deeper training in Accelerated Experiential Dynamic Psychotherapy (AEDP).

AEDP is an integrative therapy that outlines a transformative process for personal growth, resilience, and authenticity by addressing and breaking through stuck patterns. With this I have been fortunate to travel and train in New York with the renowned leaders in AEDP. This model resonates not only with me but also with many of the clients I work with, allowing for a deeply engaged and authentic therapeutic experience.

I am a registered clinical psychologist with the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (AHPRA) and a member of the Australian Psychological Society (APS). Furthermore, I am eligible to provide clinical psychology services through Medicare. Overall, I provide a wholistic and integrated psychology service in Carlton, Inner Melbourne, and beyond. Therefore, if you’re looking for a Carlton psychologist who goes the extra mile, reach out to me today to embark on your transformative journey.
