Personal profile

Biography

I am a registered Clinical Psychologist and Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the Centre for Emotional Health, Department of Psychology, Macquarie University. My current research focuses on psychological interventions for anxiety and depression in older adults. One aspect of my research investigates the effect of social connectedness on anxiety and depression in older adults.

In addition to my PhD research which investigated appraisal bias under uncertainty and ambiguity in generalised anxiety disorder (GAD), I have been involved in a number of clinical research projects, including a prospective study examining the long-term effectiveness of cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) for adult anxiety disorders in hospital outpatient settings.

Clinically, I have specialised in the assessment and treatment of anxiety and related disorders in children, adolescents, and adults for over 10 years. I have had extensive clinical experience in private and public sectors, including delivery of stepped-cared treatment for adults and older adults in an outpatient setting.

I have been involved in the training and supervision of provisional psychologists since 2008. I have also held lecturing positions at a number of universities in Sydney.
