Meet Mel

About Mel

I have over 10 years of experience working with both male and female teenage and adult clients. I am skilled in working with fertility, parenting, mood disorders, personality disorders, drug and alcohol addictions, interpersonal difficulties, complex trauma, PTSD, sexual offenders, and forensic clients. I am also LGBQTIA+ ally.

I also have extensive experience delivering group-based intervention programs and many years of experience in change management, leadership development, team dynamics, recruitment, team building, coaching and mentoring, and workplace assessments. 


I can conduct assessments and write reports for a variety of audiences (e.g. family and other courts, Centrelink etc) 

I have completed a Bachelor of Psychology (Honours) and a Masters in Business Psychology. I am registered through the Australian Health Practitioners Agency (AHPRA) and a member of the Australian Association of Psychologist inc (AAPi). 


I am trained in many evidence-based approaches, including Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT), Group based CBT treatment programs and I continue to add more to my repertoire.


In addition to my formal qualifications and experience. I have a keen interest in learning new things. I am always looking for ways to learn new skills and diversify my practice.

I strongly believe to live our best lives we need to have a focus on the whole person inside and out. That’s why you’ll often see me out and about walking my two dogs and soaking up the sunshine that Queensland has to offer.

Additionally, I have built many connections with clinicians in other modalities of allied healthcare to make sure my clients receive the best person-centred and individual treatment they can. There is no one-size-fits-all. So tailoring a treatment plan to you and your needs is my primary focus.

Outside of work I am a busy Mum to six kids ( to our big blended family) and wife to the love of my life Spencer. I enjoy reading, live music, most sports, growing in my faith and spending time with the people who matter most to me.
