Christie graduated her Bachelor of Psychology (Honours) from the University of Newcastle in 2008 and is a Member of the Australian Psychological Society (APS)
Christie works with clients across the lifespan and has a particular interest supporting the healing and recovery journeys of people affected by complex mental health, trauma, grief and loss, self-harm and suicidal ideation.
Christie has a natural coaching style and utilises aspects of Cognitive Behaviour Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, Solution-Focused, and Schema Therapy in her practice.
Having worked with adults who have lived experience of complex mental health prior to becoming a psychologist, Christie is passionate about delivering recovery-oriented therapy helping clients find meaning, hope, identity and responsibility in life. Christie’s client-focused approach means she will meet her clients where they’re at and help them take control of their life by working collaboratively and respectfully.

Christie has also worked with children and families as a Behaviour Therapist, helping to understand behaviours of concern and manage risk.
