Overview

Crysta practices at our Beaumaris and Armadale Clinics. She is a Clinical Psychologist with experience working with adults and children in both private and public mental health services. She completed her training in New Zealand where she worked with children and adults, including providing assessment and intervention for developmental disorders such as Autism Spectrum Disorder, Attention Deficit and Hyperactivity Disorder, and Dyslexia. Alongside private practice, Crysta is part of an adolescent mental health hospital team where she has developed a special interest in working with adolescents and young adults who may experience anxiety, panic attacks, trauma, bullying and peer pressure, depression, low self-esteem, and self-harming behaviour. Crysta provides a comfortable and safe space for people to share their difficulties. She has a collaborative therapy approach to applying evidence based therapies, including Cognitive Behavioural Therapy. Crysta accepts referrals for adults, adolescents, and children.
