I am a licensed clinical psychologist with 20 years experience in the field. I have worked in the U.S.A and overseas in inpatient units, outpatient clinics and residential treatment centers.

I work largely, but not exclusively with children and their parents. My current specialities include child and adolescent mental health issues, parenting (particularly special needs children), trauma and its impact, psychological and educational testing and evaluation, as well as treatment planning.

I am passionate about removing the myths and stigma's associated with mental illness, encouraging early identification and intervention and making psychological theory and research available and accessible to the general public.
