About Laura

I am an experienced registered psychologist in private practice, who works with children (7+), adolescents and adults. I work with clients seeking treatment for general mental health presentations, navigating difficult life circumstances or transition points, clients seeking help to address eating disorders, substance abuse (or other compulsive behaviours), and clients seeking therapeutic work to address the impact of trauma. I have experience working with LGBTIQ+ clients (including supporting children/adolescents exploring gender identity) and clients from a variety of cultural backgrounds.

I place an emphasis on creating a safe, collaborative and interesting therapy space to foster new insights and change, and am trained in and use a range of evidence-based therapeutic interventions combined with talking therapy. I work with each person as an individual and collaboratively. In work with children I combine play, creative interventions and talking therapy, and work systemically involving family members and schools.

I am also able to provide appointments in German and Finnish and provide supervision for other clinicians.


I work from Level 1, 411 Brunswick Street, Fitzroy 3065 (after-hours appointments also available). I also provide appointments over Telehealth.

I provide individual therapy to address a range of concerns including:

  • General mental health concerns in childhood, adolescence, adulthood.
  • Family, peer, workplace/school difficulties in childhood, adolescence, adulthood.
  • Sexuality & gender identity
  • Trauma
  • Relationship & attachment issues
  • Concerns around substance use or other addictive behaviours (including eating disorders)
  • Grief and loss
  • Life changes & adjustment difficulties
  • Cultural identity, conflict & adjustment


  • Standard Individidual Consultation fee 200 AUD
  • Discounts are possible in some circumstances (e.g. for students)
