She has worked predominantly in private practise and school settings providing counselling and interventions for students and families for issues including, but not limited to depression, anxiety, trauma, domestic violence, psychosis, personality disorders, low self-esteem and social skills. Her placement at the Developmental Disability Clinic of Monash Medical Centre saw her support families adjusting to the diagnosis of disability in their child and included parent-child therapy. Sarah has since worked with families across the lifespan: primary school-aged children at the Department of Education and high school at Catholic Care. Sarah has contributed to published research in the field of Educational and Developmental Psychology.
Sarah commenced working in private practise in 2016 and is honoured to provide a safe, warm and non-judgemental space in which to support clients in times of adjustment and mental health challenges. She has a keen interest in women’s mental health, anxiety, depression, perinatal mood disorders, parenting and secure parent-child attachment. Sarah tailors her response to the individual needs of the client and endeavours for sessions to be supportive, practical and relevant.
