As a multidisciplinary mental health office, we are devoted to helping our clients deal with a wide range of mental health needs.

Our highly educated and experienced staff of licensed psychiatrists and psychologists believes strongly in the power of the individual to help him- or herself when given the right tools and guidance. To that end, we offer the following services which cover as wide a range of mental health needs as possible, incorporating multiple methods of assisting each individual to achieve a sense of personal strength and well-being.

  • Individual, couples, family, and play therapies

Life is meant to be joyful and fulfilling, rich with meaningful relationships and purposeful progress. Sometimes, however, obstacles and frustrations arise, which can discourage your progress or inhibit your enjoyment. These obstacles can take many different shapes and sizes, from small hurdles to seemingly insurmountable mountains. As we work with you, our goal is to help cut a path through these obstacles and help you realize your full potential.

You may be wondering if your particular needs are important. We assure you that they are. Our approach as psychologists in Australia is to be dedicated to assisting you in understanding your worth and potential with multiple approaches to care and therapy.

If you are seeking a caring psychologist in the Northern Beaches, your search is over. The psychologists, at our clinic, have devoted their careers to helping others on their journeys to mental health. This assistance is realized through various forms of therapy and treatment, all of which are specially designed and tailored to each person’s particular needs.

Every person carries the ability to heal him- or herself. When pain, obstacles, and other blocks arise that prevent you from seeing a clear path to a joyful existence, the assistance of an objective third party can often be the key to helping you clear away those obstacles on your journey to a more fulfilled life.
