Stephanie initially graduated in 2004 with a Bachelor of Health Sciences in Behaviour Management. It is with this degree that her skills in functional assessment and behaviour management were gained. Following this degree she refined these skills by providing in and out of home functional assessments and providing behaviour management plans. Substantial experience was then gained in the non- government and statutory organisations through assisting people to manage grief and loss, provide individual and relationship counselling, and assist people to address ongoing depression and anxiety they may be experiencing.
Further academic study was completed to gain a Graduate Diploma in Psychology and Masters of Clinical Sciences to ensure services being provided are evidence based and consistent with the most up to date and cutting edge strategies to address challenges people are experiencing.
Stephanie has a passion for working with children and adults to address the challenges they are experiencing in their lives. She works in a holistic manner and collaboratively works with other allied health professionals to provide you with information and services that will assist you and your child into the future. She is committed to working with people to empower them to successfully manage life challenges.
