Hello, my name is Melissa.


I am an experienced psychologist, ISTDP clinician, breathwork facilitator, coach, and supervisor. I am passionate about my work with motivated clients who want a good life and who pertain the capacity to strive towards achieving it.

I am originally from Adelaide and growing up, I was influenced to study psychology due to my own experience of being supported by a psychologist when my mum was terminally ill. Though, even before this I recall asking mum deeply philosophical questions such as, “why was I born?” and “where do souls come from?”

I was a curious and imaginative child who had a desire to understand myself and others. After the birth of my first son, I realised I could not keep working in hospitality and I decided to go back to university and study psychology. I had no idea where this journey would lead me, though I was excited. After my undergraduate studies, I moved to the Gold Coast where I now call home. I love its proximity to both the ocean and to the hills.

I am a mother to two boys, wife, friend to many, swimming enthusiast and more recently lover of running (or as my husband would say, it’s jogging).

What lights me up are seriously committed people. People who want to be their best selves. I have done the work myself and I know what it takes to succeed emotionally, psychologically, intellectually and spiritually.  And I love to help my clients to do the same.

You do not have to be unwell to work with me.

I do expect you to be an active participant in the journey.

There are no magic cures, only a genuine commitment to be better in all areas of your life.
