Rachelle enjoys working with people across the lifespan to reach a greater sense of wellbeing. Wellbeing includes many areas of life, from cognition to social and emotional learning, social connection, and adaptive behaviour. She adopts a collaborative approach that is warm, person-centred, and goal oriented in counselling and assessment. She has experience in multiple practice settings including schools and private practice.
Rachelle has a special interest in work with women, girls, and international students. Her passion for research and teaching led her to undertake a PhD in applied ethics at Monash University. This research focuses on ethical decision-making in therapeutic work with young people particularly those who may be considered mature minors. She expects to complete the PhD in 2024.
Rachelle accepts a variety of referrals including developmental assessment (e.g., Autism Spectrum Disorder, Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder), psychoeducational assessment (e.g., cognitive assessment, Specific Learning Disorders), and counselling (e.g., anxiety, depression, self-esteem, executive functioning, career, relationships).
