Over the past two decades, Nicole has provided treatment utilising cognitive-behavioural therapy (CBT) in various settings: public (including Clinical Leader, CAMHS) and private; and across Australia, including rural, remote, metropolitan, hospital and university. With a strengths-based approach, Nicole enjoys collaborating with parents and other team members and specialists involved in their child’s care.
Nicole approaches CBT as a creative scientist. She endeavours to train children/adolescents and their families in tools to manage anxiety/frustration and lift mood, and while attending to this serious business, aims to provide as much fun as possible. As a parent herself, Nicole is cognisant of the real-life challenges that crop up from time to time when parenting. With an ineffable love of her work, she provides training in CBT tools that she hopes will last a lifetime.
In addition to her role at CPMG, Nicole is the Director of Emerge Psychology and Access and Inclusion Officer of the Australian Psychological Society’s Clinical College.
