Angela is a clinical psychologist who studied at the University of New South Wales and Macquarie University in Sydney. Since completing a Master of Clinical Psychology in 2019, she has worked as a psychologist in both forensic and inpatient settings, providing support to people from a broad range of backgrounds. Before practicing as a psychologist, she worked in dementia research and is therefore familiar with the impact that neurodegenerative conditions have on individuals and their loved ones, and the grief and loss associated with that.

Angela likes to work collaboratively with clients to help them to identify their treatment goals and develop a plan for how to achieve them. Some sessions may be spent learning new skills using a range of evidence-based psychological treatments, including CBT, DBT, ACT and schema therapy. Others will focus on talking, exploring and better understanding your life and experiences. She adopts a compassionate and practical approach to ensure that you feel understood and that the treatment is in line with your goals. She is a member of both the Australian Psychological Society and the Australian Clinical Psychology Association.

Angela grew up on the coast outside of Sydney, so enjoys getting out of the city, exploring new places and spending time outdoors. She also loves food and dogs and can often be found checking out new restaurants or patting strangers’ dogs in the park.

Angela sees adults 18 years and over.
