Provisional Psychologist & Family Therapist
Emily is a warm and empathetic therapist who takes a client-centred approach to treatment. She grew up in the Adelaide hills and moved to Sydney in 2018 to pursue a career in the treatment of eating disorders. She holds a Bachelor of Health Science (Epidemiology), Graduate Diploma of Psychological Science and Bachelor of Psychology (Honours – first class). She is also a member of the Australian Psychological Society (APS).
Emily believes that the therapeutic alliance, where the client feels safe and heard, is a central component of successful treatment and aims to establish this relationship with her clients.
She is passionate about supporting adolescents who are experiencing anorexia nervosa and is trained in Maudsley Family Based Therapy (MFBT). She is also particularly interested in working with adult clients experiencing eating disorders, anxiety, depression, trauma-related difficulties, and obsessive-compulsive disorder, utilising Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Enhanced Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT-E), Motivational Interviewing (MI), Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT), Radically-Open Dialectical Behavioural Therapy (RO DBT), and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) approaches. She also believes in the therapeutic benefits of a deeper awareness and connection with your body through gentle movement, mindful breathing, and meditation; and has completed a 200 hour yoga teacher training.
Outside of her work, Emily enjoys visiting her friends and family in South Australia, exploring new places around Sydney, reading, and playing with her two guinea pigs (Squiddle and Pip).
