I’m a Clinical Psychologist who is passionate about working with children, adolescents, families and young adults. My work is based on the belief that people want to live their lives to the fullest and in line with their own values. It is my passion to support youngsters who are struggling with psychological difficulties, including those transitioning into adulthood, as well as the parents who have the best intentions for their children’s wellbeing.
I’m a New Zealand registered Clinical Psychologist and I speak fluent English and Mandarin. I provide assessment and evidence-based therapies for a range of mental health difficulties, including:
- Depression/ low mood
- Anxiety Disorders (Separation Anxiety, Panic, Social Anxiety, Specific Phobias and Perfectionism)
- Obsessive Compulsive Disorder
- Body Dysmorphic Disorder
- Eating Disorders
- Sleeping Problems
My therapy approaches include Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Narrative Therapy, Family Based Therapy for eating disorders, and Circle of Security- Parenting.
My approach to therapy is to create a warm and safe space for clients and work collaboratively towards understanding their difficulties and their identified therapy goals. In addition to my private practice, I also work within the District Health Board mental health service and specialise in working with children, adolescents and their families with moderate to severe psychological difficulties.
I have a degree in Doctor of Clinical Psychology and a Master’s degree in Psychology from Massey University, New Zealand. I have two dogs and my favourite ice-cream flavour is Chocolate Mint.

I will be on maternity leave from August 2021
