Diane is a Child and Family Therapist enrolled in Psychology Honours (part-time over 2024 and 2025) and is a student member of the Australian Psychological Society.

She is a compassionate and empathetic therapist with over a decade of experience in working with families, individuals and couples. She is interested in understanding the mechanisms that drive human behaviour, Diane shares this knowledge with her clients to help support their understanding.

Drawing from evidence-based practice, including Emotionally Focused Therapy and Dyadic Developmental Psychotherapy, Diane works with clients to create a therapeutic environment that provides emotional safety and builds trust. When working with distressed couples and families, she works to understand the patterns in the relationship, create new patterns, and strengthen the love and bond between them. When working with individuals, the role of emotions and attachment are still crucial to supporting an individual’s well-being, overcoming trauma, and treating depression and anxiety.

Diane works in the field of Child Protection with Complex Care. They specialise in child protection, neuroscience, therapeutic care, family therapy, developmental trauma, attachment, mental health, disability and education support.

Diane also has experience in working with Solution Focused Therapy and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy.
