Resume

Michelle completed her Master of Clinical Psychology and PhD degrees at The University of New South Wales. She has extensive experience working with adults presenting with a wide range of psychological issues. Her primary area of interest and expertise is in the assessment and treatment of anxiety disorders, such as panic disorder, agoraphobia, generalised anxiety disorder (GAD), social anxiety disorder, specific phobias, and obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD).

Michelle is also working part-time as a psychologist at WSLHD Anxiety Treatment and Research Unit, an outpatient anxiety disorders specialist clinic at Cumberland Hospital, where she works extensively with adults presenting with severe anxiety disorders with complex comorbid issues. Michelle’s treatment approach is primarily informed by Cognitive-Behavioural Therapy (CBT), due to the strong research evidence for its efficacy. She is also trained in other evidence-based therapy approaches and skills, such as Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT), Cognitive Processing Therapy (CPT) for PTSD, and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT). Michelle has several research publications in peer-reviewed journals from her PhD. She has also been invited to provide presentations on anxiety disorders to other health professionals in the Western Sydney Local Health District. She is a member of the Australian Psychological Society (APS), Australian Clinical Psychology Association (ACPA), and the Australian Association for Cognitive and Behaviour Therapy (AACBT).
