My Background

Born and raised in Wellington, I am a graduate of Victoria University and the University of Auckland School Of Medicine. I completed undergraduate medical training in Auckland and specialist training in both Auckland and Hamilton.

For the past 8 years I have been a consultant child and adolescent psychiatrist working in Hamilton. During that time, I also conducted outreach clinics in Te Awamutu, Tokoroa and, most recently, Thames. Recently, I was acting Clinical Director for ICAMHS in the Waikato region. As a result, I have developed an understanding of the services available locally and have developed a network of clinicians in various disciplines which is invaluable in facilitating optimal care.

As well as clinical work I have also taught University of Auckland medical students and psychiatric registrars. I have also regularly supervised junior registrars rotating through ICAMHS as well as those completing advanced training in child and adolescent psychiatry.

I pride myself on being warm and open. I have a wide range of experience in psychiatry and strive to provide optimal care. I am honest with patients and their families about diagnoses and the utility of various interventions. Although I do not formally provide psychotherapy I feel it is often an integral part of a person’s recovery and can facilitate engagement with appropriately trained therapists.

Although trained as a child and adolescent psychiatrist I am also trained as a general psychiatrist. I am able to see children and adolescents and adults up to the age of 65.

I have a special interest in the diagnosis and management of ADHD both in the child and adolescent and adult population. I also have expertise in the management of mood and anxiety disorders.
