Her key area of expertise has been working holistically with people with psychotic disorders and other complex mental health challenges, providing assessment and treatment to improve functioning and quality of life.

Other interest areas include functional cognition, sensory modulation and supporting parents, children and young people in distress or experiencing mental health challenges using attachment-based interventions.
