Stephanie is a clinical psychologist who is passionate about working with children and families to improve their communication, relationships, and functioning. She uses an enthusiastic, empathic, and warm approach to engage with and collaborate with clients. Stephanie works with children across a wide variety of age groups, from 7 years old up to adulthood.
Stephanie has a particular passion for working with families of children with challenging behaviours and improving communication between parents and children. She feels strongly about involving families in therapy, and often works with parents as well as children, both for behavioural management and communication with parents, as well as discussions on attachment and emotion coaching. She believes that taking a wider view of the family system is essential to maintaining positive outcomes for child clients. Stephanie frequently works on emotion regulation skills and social skills training with children with ASD, as well as often working with children with ADHD on organisational skills. She has worked individually with children and adolescents experiencing anxiety and mood disorders, using Cognitive-Behavioural Therapy and incorporating elements from other therapies.
Stephanie has extensive experience working with families with children with behavioural difficulties, using both Parent Management Training and Collaborative & Proactive Solutions. She previously worked as Australia’s only private CPS psychologist at the UTS Health Psychology Unit, now known as The Kidman Centre. She has experience conducting academic and cognitive assessments for children with a variety of presentations, including ADHD, learning difficulties, and giftedness. Stephanie is also passionate about birdwatching and video games, which often works as a point of connection with many of the children she works with.
Stephanie completed a Bachelor of Arts (Advanced) (Honours) in Ancient History, before completing a Graduate Diploma in Psychology and Honours in Psychology from the University of Sydney. She continued her development as a psychologist through the Master of Clinical Psychology at the University of Technology, Sydney. She completed her clinical psychology registrar program after two years of practice with intensive supervision and a high level of professional development.
