Hello! I’m Kate and thank you for taking the time to read my profile. I’m originally from Victoria but I have lived in Adelaide since 2019. I’ve spent the last 10+ years working mostly with young people and their families in Mental Health services.
I’ve been fortunate to gain experience working with a wide variety of presentations from severe and complex mental health needs, through to adjustment difficulties.
A lot of my work history includes working with clients who have had negative experiences seeking mental health support in the past, and on creating a positive therapeutic experience so that this pattern doesn’t continue.
I work mostly on identifying and adjusting unhelpful thoughts and life patterns that are perpetuating people’s struggles with their mental health. My ultimate goal in working with you is to help you understand why and how your difficulties have developed, identify and implement the right skills to help you overcome these, and to support you to get to a place where you feel like you can navigate these struggles independently.
I have a calm and welcoming nature and I always work hard to ensure you feel safe with me and in the therapy room so that we can work through your challenges together. You’ll often see me smiling or showing my excitement when you tell me the latest fear or obstacle you’ve overcome. With each appointment, I will aim to ensure that you leave with a new understanding or a new skill to use in order to overcome your mental health challenges.
I consult at North Adelaide, Mondays through to Friday, offering a range of both business and after hour appointments both face-to-face and via Telehealth.

Special Areas of Interest
My main interest areas are working with people who suffer from Anxiety disorders, or perfectionistic tendencies. Often, people can present with Anxiety and Depression from setting incredibly high standards for themselves, and then feel defeated when they are unable to meet these standards. By exploring how Anxiety or perfectionistic tendencies have developed, we can then begin to explore how particular thoughts and behaviours worsen these symptoms and develop a plan on how to reduce these so that you can live a more fulfilling life.
I also have a strong interest in supporting people to overcome Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). I use Cognitive Processing Therapy to help unpack the thoughts that are getting you stuck in recovering from your trauma, and teach you the skills to adjust these thought processes.
- LGBTIQA+ clients
50-minute sessions, face to face or via telehealth, are $250 (business hours), which reduces to $157.10 after your Medicare rebate if you are under a Mental Health Care Plan referred by your GP, psychiatrist or paediatrician. For after hours services the session costs $290, which reduces to $197.10 after your mental health care fund rebate.
These are the standard length for subsequent individual sessions unless otherwise negotiated.
Health funds and payments
You can pay online via card for telehealth bookings in advance or on the day prior to your appointment or for face to face sessions use Eftpos in our practice before or after your appointment.
Our team will process your Medicare and private health rebates immediately after your appointment.
For telehealth appointments the claim may be made for Medicare by our team through our software. For private health we will send you a receipt in the case of telehealth services. Please note that although we may process payments in advance we are not permitted to process the rebates until after the appointment has finished by law.
If you have private cover you do not need a referral and will pay a variable gap depending on your level of cover and your health fund. Please check with your health fund before booking to understand whether you are entitled to a rebate for psychology services. If you are in the rooms we will process the gap but if doing telehealth we will send you a receipt for claiming after full payment has been made.
To access our services as part of Mental Health Care Plan (allowed up to 10 visits per calendar year (initial referral for 6 sessions), please email our reception team with your valid Plan and a referral letter from your GP.
We accept clients with a self-managed or plan-managed NDIS referral but do not take NDIS agency referrals. There will be a gap payment beyond the NDIS fee that is payable on the day of your appointment. Please call us before booking to make sure your plan fits our criteria for referrals within our practice.
