I am a health psychology registrar currently working with clients across the lifespan (individuals, couples, children, adolescents, and families) within the Complex Needs Clinic and Private Practice at Bower Place. I provide direct therapeutic interventions primarily based on the principles of Family Therapy and Systemic Practice.
I completed the Master of Psychology (Health) and PhD program offered at the University of Adelaide. My masters research is in the field of cancer awareness, examining the attitudes and knowledge of Australian women towards cervical cancer screening. My PhD is in the field of cancer survivorship, examining cancer identity and the media representation of people diagnosed with cancer. My other areas of interest include student migration, psychoneuroimmunology and juvenile justice.
