An experienced doctor providing care to people with mental health problems, life stresses and personal challenges.
Providing mental health care in Melbourne, I see adults, children and adolescents individually, as well as couples and families. I conduct assessments, arrange relevant investigations, and develop and implement management plans, prescribing medication, and undertaking psychological treatment wherever appropriate.
I don't provide general medical care, for which you should see your usual general practitioner. I am happy to provide shared care with your GP and liaise with them as needed.
I use Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Interpersonal Therapy, the Motivational Interviewing method, relaxation strategies and skills training to manage mental illness and common emotional and psychological problems, including stress, depression, anxiety, eating disorders and relationship issues.
In cognitive behavioural therapy you will learn to notice and examine your thinking style and see how it contributes to how you feel. You can develop more useful ways of thinking, to help change your behaviour and develop more effective life skills.
I aim to develop with you a management plan that suits your needs. Most importantly, treatment will address current issues, as well as provide a ‘tool kit’ of skills for the future.
I graduated from the University of Melbourne medical school in 1988 and have worked over 25 years in public and private mental health.
I have held senior lectureships with the University of New South Wales and the University of Melbourne, and was awarded a conjoint appointment with the Department of Psychiatry, UNSW, for my work with curriculum development, and education of medical students.
I advocate mental health promotion, particularly in the work environment. I have completed the Monash Certificate in Clinical Occupational Medicine and an MBA at Melbourne Business School, affording specific insight in this area.

The practice is located adjacent to the future site of the ANZAC metro station.
During the construction of the metro extension there will inevitably be changes to traffic conditions, public transport and parking. You can stay updated about developments here. Please plan ahead and leave plenty of time to make your appointment.
Ticketed street parking is available for up to two hours in St Kilda Road, Albert Road, Park Street, Wells Street and other nearby streets. If using street parking it's a good idea to bring change, as many of the meters do not take credit.
Tramstop 20, now named Park Street, is located directly opposite in St Kilda Road, and serves numerous tram routes, including 3/3a, 5, 6, 8, 16, 55, 64, 67 and 72.
Tramstop 119, named Wells Street, has been built at the corner of Park Street and Wells Street, close to our building's rear entrance in Wells Street. This serves route 58.
