Stephanie’s passion is to support children and their families to reach their potential through individualised, practical, and creative strategies.
Stephanie completed her Bachelor of Psychology (Honours) at the University of Newcastle in 2016. Her studies involved completing research projects on some of the neurological effects of videogame addiction. Stephanie is registered as a Provisional Psychologist with AHPRA since February 2019, and is currently working towards general registration.
Stephanie has over 10 years of experience working with children, including several years working as a mentor and private tutor. Recently, Stephanie has been working as a school Psychologist to support students to achieve the most out of their schooling. Stephanie also has several years of experience working in the disability sector, including 2 years working as a Local Area Coordinator (LAC) for the NDIS. Stephanie presently works in early intervention for children with a range of disabilities and diagnoses. This has provided her with a thorough understanding of disability needs, available supports, and funding logistics.
Stephanie employs a warm and fun therapeutic experience to her clients. Stephanie specialises in providing collaborative and client-directed therapy, with a focus on tailoring supports to meet the client and identifying how each member of the family might best be supported. Stephanie’s experience has primarily involved supporting the development of emotional regulation (particularly regarding anxiety and frustration), finding practical strategies that all members of the family can be involved with, engaging with schools to implement classroom supports, and both cognitive and academic assessments.
Stephanie was born and raised in the Lake Macquarie region. When she isn’t working, Stephanie enjoys playing video and board games, spending time with friends, doing DIY projects, learning languages, and travelling.
