Kelly (she/her) is an Educational and Developmental Psychologist with experience working in community, education and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health settings. Kelly’s training and experience has predominantly focused on children, teens and young adults but she welcomes people of all ages and walks of life. Kelly believes that the shared experience of emotion is a powerful catalyst for growth.

Kelly prioritises empathy and compassion throughout the therapeutic experience. Her gentle approach is guided by you as the expert in your own life and she understands her role as the therapist to be with you while you look inward. Kelly uses a person-centred, attachment-based framework to connect deeply with you, while helping you to live a life that is meaningful to you.
