Clare has extensive experience working with young people and families with Autism,
intellectual disabilities, and individuals and families with a history of trauma. She completed
her Honours degree in Psychological Science at Bond University, including a semester
abroad in the Netherlands studying Positive Psychology at the University of Maastricht.
Since obtaining provisional registration, she has gained valuable experience working with
individuals presenting with personality and identity concerns, complex trauma, gender
dysphoria, significant behavioural difficulties, anxiety and depression, and individuals with
cognitive and attentional difficulties.
Clare particularly enjoys working through life transition challenges with adolescents, such as
peer relationship and social interaction difficulties, learning and sensory challenges, anxiety
and emotion regulation difficulties, and with older individuals, including working through
grief and loss, mood disorders, complex trauma, and social isolation concerns.
Clare believes in the importance of taking a person-centred approach to therapy, and has an
easy-going, relaxed nature with a focus on providing professional, holistic treatment and a
knack for making individuals feel at ease in a confidential, non-judgemental space. She
enjoys drawing on different types of treatment modalities and including Cognitive Behaviour
Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, and Dialectical Behaviour Therapy.
