Emily joined the Capital Psychology team in 2019 after completing her Master’s in Clinical Psychology at the University of Canberra. She is currently in the final stages of her registrar program and will soon gain endorsement as a clinical psychologist. Alongside her clinical work, Emily balances training and competition in distance running and has previously represented Australia at the Commonwealth Games and World Championships in 5000m and cross-country events.
Emily has experience working with a diverse range of clients, completing training at the University of Canberra Psychology Clinic, ACT Corrective Services and Headspace prior to commencing work in private practice. Emily is particularly passionate about working with young people and adults, assisting them to become more engaged, connected and committed across all aspects of their lives. By focusing on techniques that improve overall physical and emotional wellbeing, she supports individuals in overcoming current difficulties and building resilience to navigate future challenges. Her treatment areas include anxiety and depressive disorders, eating difficulties and body image concerns and sports and performance psychology. She is also skilled in conducting cognitive and behavioural assessments across all ages to assess for specific learning disorders, intellectual giftedness or other neurodevelopmental disorders.
Outside of the office, you will most likely find Emily running along one of the beautiful bush trails in Canberra! If she is not training, her other passions in life are good food, coffee and wine, so most weekends will involve time spent at one of Canberra’s many cafes or wineries, cooking new recipes and curling up with a good book and cup of tea.
