I have worked as a teacher, senior educational psychologist, school and tertiary counsellor, private psychologist, and much more recently as a university lecturer and tutor.

Much of my work as an educational psychologist was in the northern area of Adelaide.

As a private psychologist I provided individual and family counselling, and assisted injured workers in their return to work, in both Adelaide and Whyalla.
