Sarah is a registered Art Therapist and completed the Master of Art Therapy program at La Trobe University. She has experience working with children, adolescents and young adults across a range of community and clinical settings.
Sarah adopts a strengths-based and child-centred approach, tailoring therapy to meet the individual needs of clients. Sarah is particularly interested in early intervention and supporting young children with complex needs. Sarah aims to provide a nurturing space for clients to express themselves freely through the art making process and learn new coping skills to enhance well-being.
Sarah loves the beach, bushwalking, and painting.
My name is Cassie and I’m currently completing my Master of Clinical Psychology at the Australian Catholic University. I have experience working within the community mental health sector, both in adult and youth inpatient care, as well as working in psychopharmaceutical research.
I have a strong interest in working with children and adolescence, as I believe early intervention is pivotal to an individual’s long term wellbeing. I am looking forward to working across both school and clinic settings for 3P.
In my spare time I love to get outside, whether it be on a hike or just to the beach. I really enjoy yoga and meditation, and most importantly spending time with family and friends.
Alexsandra is a Registered Psychologist currently pursuing practice endorsement in Educational and Developmental Psychology. She is passionate about supporting the positive neurodevelopment, mental health and wellbeing, and education of children and adolescents to foster resilience and promote flourishing. Sasha has experience in psychoeducational assessments and ongoing support (e.g., autism, ADHD, learning difficulties, giftedness, intellectual disability, cognitive and academic profiles), school counselling, mental health research, and mentoring young adolescents in social and emotional learning. She enjoys bringing an energetic and client-centred approach to supporting children to meet their potential.
I’m Josh, a provisional psychologist, very happily undertaking my internship at 3P. I have previous experience providing counselling for children and young adults and also worked in disability support for many years. I completed a Bachelor of Arts (Psychology) at Deakin University and a Graduate Diploma of Psychology (Advanced) at Monash University.
I love working with all young people, but I am especially interested in supporting Autistic and ADHD kids to support concerns around anxiety, self-esteem and relationships. I will also be conducting assessments and working with some local schools to support their students. I love to travel, play the guitar and talk about whatever topic currently has my interest!
I am a provisional psychologist based at the Rye cottage and very excited about working with the team at 3P to assist and support the wellbeing of young people in my community. I come from a background in secondary school teaching and youth work and I bring a wealth of experience in helping young people overcome barriers and achieve great outcomes. I followed my dream and completed a Graduate Diploma of Psychology (Hons.) in recent years; I believe that if we dream big and dig deep, we can become whoever we want to be in life. I love camping and having adventures together. I look forward to meeting you at 3P.
I am a provisional psychologist at 3P. I completed a Bachelor of Psychology (Honours) at Monash University. I am passionate about making a positive difference in the life of others by working collaboratively with a client through person-centred care to better understand the individual’s strengths and needs, so I can support their needs to improve their quality of life. I have diverse experience working with clients of all ages across Aged Care, NDIS, and educational settings.
I love going on walks with my puppy, as well as learning about dinosaurs … did you know T-Rexes can swim?!”
I am a Clinical Psychologist committed to helping people get the most out of therapy. I have worked in public mental health and drug and alcohol services with young people and adults for more than 30 years. Over the past 12 years I’ve also been building a part-time private practice. I have a particular interest in working with neurologically diverse people and people who have experienced traumatic life events.
I am passionate about supporting people through difficult times with a therapeutic approach that is person-centred, focussed by your goals and evidence-based. I seek to understand each person’s unique experiences, working at their pace to set goals that work for them. I utilise my training and knowledge of psychological theory, research, and therapeutic practice to help them achieving these goals. I am thoughtful, warm, respectful, and non-judgemental. I understand and respect the courage it takes to reach out for assistance and I aim to create a safe space to share, make sense of things and manage difficult experiences.
I am a Provisional Psychologist currently completing the Master of Educational and Developmental Psychology at Monash University. I enjoy working with young people, their families, and schools to provide understanding and support for any challenges they are experiencing. I utilise CBT and ACT, as well as taking a collaborative, strengths based approach. Outside of 3P, I enjoy working as a counsellor in a primary school. I also like to spend time with my family and friends, read, and do the occasional jigsaw puzzle.
I am a registered psychologist with a special interest in the perinatal period (pregnancy ~ 12 months post birth.) Pregnancy and parenting is an exciting and special time, however it can also be extremely challenging. I aim to bridge the gap between hospital and home, allowing for continuity of care for both mum and baby. The focus of sessions are based on psychological well-being, exploration of mental health challenges, support around building confidence and to assist in establishing healthy and positive relationships with their babies and family members.
I use a combination of therapeutic techniques such as Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy and Dialectical Behaviour Therapy as I recognise that there isn’t a one size fits all approach to support.
I also work with children doing assessments and counselling.
I have undertaken several courses in perinatal mental health and am also currently in the process of gaining accreditation through the Possums Program to become an NDC (Neuroprotective Developmental Care) practitioner.
I am a provisional psychologist and very happy to be working with the team at 3P! I am currently completing a Master/PhD in Educational and Developmental Psychology at Monash University and have also completed a Bachelor in Education (Secondary). I have experience working as a secondary teacher in schools but also in working with both primary and secondary schools to assess students and provide recommendations to support them both at home and school. I also have experience in supporting adolescents with interventions to address concerns such as anxiety, depression, and bullying. I enjoy implementing a holistic approach when working with young people, collaborating with the young person, their schools, and their families. I am also passionate about mental health support for immigrant and refugee children, adolescents, and families. When I’m not working you can usually find me with my 2 dogs, Nyla and Rocky, or figuring out my next travel destination.
