"As a psychologist I take great pride in providing supportive , collaborative and creative solutions for change. I like to keep therapy as real as possible and have my clients feel at home in our clinic space" -Dr Rhiarne

What I Do

Thank you for taking the time to visit my website! I am very proud of my boutique practice, which has been running for 11 years on the Gold Coast. I am passionate about the work I do with children, adolescents, families and adults. I value working with many different life-stages and the challenges that each person can face. Clinical Psychology is something I have been doing since 2004, and I keep learning each year from the wonderful clients I am privileged to work with. Life is a gift and we should treasure it best we can. Let's see if I am able to assist!

My Mission

My Psychology work aims to assist clients in creative ways. I value being able to collaborate with clients to enhance their personal strengths, set goals to achieve their desired potential and equipping them with creative solutions for life's challenges. I enjoy working holistically with individuals and their families to create change in a trusting environment. I tailor clinical support for the individual, rather than a "one-sized fits all approach". As a mother of 3 young children, I also draw from much of this experience in my clinical work.

How to Start?

Feel free to make contact with me to discuss how I may be able to assist. I would be more than happy to answer your questions and establish if I am the right psychologist for your requirements. This is a very important step of the process. Medicare provides rebates for Psychology services via a GP Mental Health Plan and Private Health Funds may also provide rebates for Psychology services. For $66 out of pocket fee per session (via Medicare fee structure for example), seeking expert specialist support can be quite affordable. Make sure you reach out.

Session fees are still eligible for rebate via Medicare, DVA, NDIS or Private Health with a small out-of-pocket cost.
