Hi, I'm Rebecca

The world demands a lot and at the same time provides a lot of uncertainty. The fact that you are looking at my profile tells me you are wanting to take a step towards a different future. It is through linking with others that we learn more, improve our lives and make a meaningful contribution.

I want to work with you, be that one person on your team, behind the scenes equipping and cheering you on. I want you to draw on my training, knowledge, and experience to help you figure things out, overcome adversity and improve your well-being.

I've had the pleasure of working with many people, young and old in my role as a psychologist. People tell me their most precious stories, greatest achievements, biggest heartaches and current difficulties.

I have worked in many roles over the last 20 years all within the community services and disability sector including government services, child protection, TAFE, Higher Education and in private allied health teams.

If needed, I will work collaboratively with you, your parents / carers, school, workplace, accommodation, business enterprises, GPs, paediatricians, and / or psychiatrist. I have provided early intervention and supports for children, young people and adults with disability and am an NDIS Registered Behaviour Support Practitioner.

I completed my psychology training in Canberra and now live on the Mid North Coast, NSW with my four amazing teenage sons. I am told that I am genuine, relatable and knowledgeable and I like to think I’m funny, but you can let me know.

While this information is 'About Me' my work has been to focus on others, to help ensure they fulfil their potential in all aspects of their lives. I extend an offer to you, to work with you to help you achieve your goals.

My Approach

I will work with you and your GP on the issues that led to the need for referral.

What is important to you is important to me. I want to get to know you and all the 'stuff' that is happening that lead you here. Home, school or work stuff, people and relationships stuff, money and background stuff, the good, the bad and the ugly stuff is all okay here. Should there be a need I want to ensure your safety and the safety of others, so let me know that stuff too.

I’m looking forward to working with you.
