I am a clinical psychologist with 40 years of experience assisting adults to understand and overcome their mental health challenges. I have worked in all areas of mental health practice, both public and private. I undertook my training as a clinical psychologist in Germany prior to moving to Australia. I am familiar with the migrant experience as well as the challenges of the third trimester of the life span.
I am fluent in the German language. I am fully registered with APHRA and I am a member of the Clinical College of the Australian Psychological Society.

My three favourite things:
