Julieanne is a registered Psychologist with a warm, open and collaborative style. She adopts a client-centered approach to therapy, tailoring her approach to suit the needs, pace, and presentation of those she works with.
She believes that everyone can grow, and is passionate about utilising individuals’ unique strengths and values to help her clients achieve their goals. Julieanne strives to create a safe and open space for those she works with, where individuals and families can explore what they want, set goals, and work towards these goals at their own set pace.
It is important to Julieanne that her clients walk away from sessions feeling heard, safe, and respected. Likening the therapeutic relationship to a partnership, Julieanne works collaboratively ‘with’ her clients to support them to support themselves.
Julieanne completed her psychology degrees at the University of Wollongong, beginning with a Bachelor of Arts (Major in Psychology) (2010), whilst also pursuing an interest in Philosophy. She then went on to complete a Postgraduate Diploma in Psychology (2011) and a Graduate Diploma in Professional Psychology (2012).

Once Julieanne graduated, she worked in a community setting at Wollongong’s First Floor Program, where she helped support individuals with mental health difficulties, drug and alcohol issues, caregiver distress, and suicidal bereavement.

Julieanne then moved into private practice, returning to work within the Sutherland Shire and in the Blacktown areas.
