Emma is a Registered Psychologist, who loves working with children, adolescents and young adults!
In 2012 Emma completed her Bachelor of Psychological Science, where she spent her final year volunteering for Edmund Rice Camps, working with the Victorian Aboriginal Child Care Agency to provide support and promote well-being for indigenous children in the foster care system.
She completed her Masters in Professional Psychology in 2015, where she worked closely with Raise Mentoring Foundation. Here, she was working with at-risk adolescents through in-school programs, with a strong focus on empowering young people to be confident, assertive and goal-oriented.
Emma has worked in the public sector with Eastern Health since 2015, working in addiction counselling services, primarily with clients with drug, alcohol and gambling concerns. Through this service, she has developed strong motivational interviewing skills, and has extensive experience in crisis management.
Emma is a client-focused therapist who concentrates on the individual needs of each client and tailors her treatment approach accordingly. She is excited to be working at Spectrum House to help children and families reach their potential, feel supported and empowered to be the best version of themselves they can be.
Emma enjoys working with a variety of client presentations in a counselling capacity, but also enjoys completing assessments (including cognitive assessments and autism spectrum disorder assessment).
