I am the Medical Director of the Lisa Thurin Women’s Health Centre. I have a decade’s experience as a consultant psychiatrist and have held leadership and clinical roles in both public and private practice.
My clinical work involves holistic mental health care combining psychotherapy, psychosocial support and medication where necessary. I believe in working with the patients, and where appropriate their families and carers, to achieve the best possible outcome. My expertise includes pharmacology across the spectrum of mental health diagnosis and also sub-specialty skills in psychodynamic psychotherapy.
I am currently an accredited supervisor for the RANZCP and provide supervision for both basic and advanced trainees in both generalist and psychotherapy areas. In addition to women’s mental health, I have an interest in the interplay between sleep disorders and mental health.
I undertook my psychiatry training in Canberra after studying medicine in Adelaide, and subsequently worked in South Australia and Queensland.
