About Jane...

I am a registered psychologist with the Psychology Board of Australia and a member of the Australian Association of Psychologists (Inc). I am also a registered teacher with the Queensland College of Teachers.


I completed my Psychology degree with First Class Honours from Southern Cross University. I have also achieved a Master of Education (ACU), a Bachelor of Science (GU), a Graduate Diploma in Teaching (ACU) and a Graduate Certificate in Applied Linguistics (GU).

I have worked in a range of contexts, including leading tertiary institutions, Catholic and Independent Primary and Secondary schools, and in a Not-for-Profit organisation in Child Protection/Foster Care. I have experience as a teacher, in leadership roles, and as a Guidance Counsellor. At present, I am a Psychologist in Private Practice and continue to work as a Guidance Counsellor in a school. Within these roles, I have successfully supported children, adults, and families from a range of backgrounds and life situations, including First Nations Peoples, those from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds, and LGBTIQ+  individuals.
