I am a Psychology Board of Australia Approved Supervisor for provisional psychologists and psychologists seeking endorsement for Educational and Developmental Psychology. I am an experienced Supervisor and have had over 25 years of experience practising as a Psychologist.

Intellectual Disability, ASD and Language Disorders

My areas of particular interest are working with children and their families. I have worked for many years with children with disabilities in particular children with developmental delay, intellectual disability and autism. I have a long interest in children with language disorders and the impact of communication delays on development and emotional regulation.

I have experience in the assessment of specific learning disorders and in treating a wide range of emotional and behavioural issues in children.

Positive Behaviour Support

I am very familiar with positive behaviour support as well as family-centred approaches to best practice when working with children. For many years I co-ordinated and lead specialist behaviour intervention and intensive family support teams in South Australia. I have a particular interest in children with disabilities who are in alternative care including foster care.

I enjoy supervising and have had many years of experience supervising both provisional and registered psychologists and am very familiar with the requirements for Board registration in Australia. I am also a Supervisor with the College of Professional Psychology.

I am available for supervision online. Please feel free to email me to discuss your supervision requirements.
