BA (Hons) DPsych (Clinical)
Olivia sees adolescents (15+) and adults in West Perth
For several years I’ve been working full time in a health department outpatient clinical psychology service, and I was excited to join the Jeffery&Ree practice to expand into the private sector. I bring a warm and professional manner and a strong desire to work hard with my clients to help them achieve their goals.
I completed my training at the University of Western Australia, completing a doctoral research in the area of eating disorders.
I have experience working with adults and adolescents (in both individual and group treatment settings) presenting with a range of issues including:
- low mood
- Anxiety (including panic attacks, social anxiety, chronic worry, phobias)
- eating disorders
I’m dedicated to delivering effective, evidence-based therapies that have been well-researched, and I’m conscious of balancing treatment protocols with the individual needs of each client.
I work primarily from a cognitive behavioural framework and I’ve also received training in dialectical behaviour therapy, acceptance and commitment therapy.
I’m actively involved in research in the field of psychology in order to work towards improving treatment outcomes for her clients. I’ve worked on several papers that have been published in peer reviewed scientific journals and I keep up to date with the latest treatment research.
I also serve the profession of psychology and am a member of several professional associations and committees. I have been invited to convene the Australia and New Zealand Academy for Eating Disorders (ANZAED) conference in Perth in 2021.
