Mary is a Registered Psychologist who provides individualised and comprehensive psychological care to children, teens, and adults in an ethical, engaging, and collaborative manner. She has worked in education, private, and community health sectors to support clients manage issues involving anxiety, depression, challenging behaviours, emotion regulation, and social difficulties.

Sessions are generally tailored to complement clients’ strengths, resources, personality, and feedback.
