Hi, I'm Usha
Client-centred therapy lies at the centre of my practice of psychology; where the client’s needs, personal perspectives and preferences inform my treatment methods and choices. I see psychological treatment as a collaborative experience forged by the kindred rapport between the client and myself.
My clients and I embark on the recovery journey together and I ensure my approach enables the client to eventually become independent where they no longer need my contribution and have found a stronger, richer version of themselves through therapy.
Usha's ready to help you improve your mental health.

She is a registered Psychologist with AHPRA and a member of the Australian Psychological Society. She has trained in clinical modalities of psychology such as ACT, CBT, DBT, rTMS depression treatment, children's psychology and LGBTQIA+ treatment techniques.
Usha is psychologist trained in key areas of psychosomatic medicine. Her skills in this area can be expanded and applied to a range of clinical psychological treatment domains.
