Rachel (she/her) works from a neurodiversity affirming perspective to support mental health and the development of an authentic self-identity in autistic individuals. In your sessions, Rachel works collaboratively to create a safe space and hopes you will feel seen and heard for who you really are. She will work with you to recognise and nurture your needs in a world that is often not designed for diverse minds, promoting your self-awareness, authenticity, and wellbeing.
Rachel completed her Doctor of Clinical Psychology at Swinburne University. Since completing her Doctorate, Rachel has continued to remain involved in autism research, and has been an invited lecturer on topics including autistic adults' mental health, and autism in girls/women. She provides therapeutic services for children, adolescents, and adults and is a board approved supervisor available for secondary consultation for professionals working in this area.
