Welcome! - this website relates to my roles as a psychologist, an author and a filmmaker.
 

I am a child and adult psychologist (member of the Australian Psychological Society, Affiliate member of the College of Clinical Psychologists, Committee member of APS Child and Family Interest Group) based in Melbourne. Having served for many years as Senior psychologist on a Children’s Assessment and Therapy team, and with a number of public clinics and hospitals, I now work in private practice with children, teens and adults. In addition I am a consultant with The Lighthouse Institute and deliver workshops to a range of organizations. 

 

For more information on my experience and therapeutic approaches click About Me - as a Psychologist.


I am also an author and filmmaker. I love to write and have been lucky enough to publish three books:

 

  • Loni and the Moon (Premier’s Reading List)
     

  • Genesis – the Book with Seventy Faces (National Jewish Book Award (USA), Notable Book for All Ages, Sydney Taylor Award)
     

  • Jacob – a World of Faces(Young Adult novella, Third Space series - a unique project designed to develop Intercultural Understanding)

 

The images on this website are based on pictures from my books by illustrator Anna Pignataro.

 

I am also a filmmaker working on feature and documentary film projects.

Author

 

  • As a writer (and psychologist) I believe in the power of stories. For who are we but the stories we tell ourselves, about ourselves, and believe?

 

  • Writing, being in the flow, is like walking into the desert – you don’t know where you’ll arrive at - a bit scary but also exciting!
