About

Andrea is an experienced psychologist, who combines her clinical knowledge with a warm and down-to-earth manner (with the occasional touch of humour) to make therapy meaningful, relaxed and authentic. Andrea is interested in working collaboratively with adults experiencing a range of concerns and issues, including adjustment, depression, perfectionism and anxiety (including worry, social anxiety, panic and obsessive compulsive disorder), and has a special interest in working with women and men experiencing mental health issues in the perinatal period.

Andrea has over 15 years’ experience working at Prince of Wales Hospital, within various clinical settings including youth and adult community mental health, perinatal and infant mental health, and is currently involved in the establishment of a new clinical program for adults.

Andrea works primarily within a cognitive-behavioural therapy framework (CBT), and will draw on a range of other evidence-based therapeutic interventions including Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), and mindfulness-based approaches. She has presented at conferences and workshops, and published research in the application of mindfulness for stress reduction in adults who experience severe mental illness.

Andrea completed her undergraduate and postgraduate training in psychology at the University of Melbourne and the University of Sydney, and is registered with the Psychology Board of Australia and the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (AHPRA).
