Dr Daniela De FazioCo Director
Psychologist & Clinical Neuropsychologist
I enjoy sharing knowledge with my clients about the psychology behind actions that enhance wellbeing and performance, giving meaning and purpose to everyday life. Through my work with the AFL Player’s Association, this also includes supporting athletes to get the most out of their off-field life to enhance their on-field performance. I work with adults using values and personal strengths and hope to provide a space for discovery, connection, and setting goals for better health and wellbeing. When I'm not on-the-go with my three boisterous boys, I enjoy great conversation over good food, keeping fit, and family holidays.
Dr Brooke DavisCo Director
Psychologist & Clinical Neuropsychologist
I am interested in the possibilities that come when brain science meets the practical art of thriving. I see people at all stages of the lifespan and aim to provide the time and space people need to create positive change in a busy world. My focus is on personal strengths and values-based action. I am also a Senior Clinical Neuropsychologist at St Vincent's Hospital. Outside of work, I am a mum and my favourite things about Melbourne are running around the city, jumping in autumn leaves and big cups of coffee.
Carly JamesPsychologist & Clinical Neuropsychology Registrar
I am a registered psychologist with a Masters degree in Clinical Neuropsychology. People of all ages see me for clinical neuropsychological assessment and for support with everyday problems. I have worked with people across the lifespan, including with children and adults with ADHD, other cognitive or learning difficulties, and complex medical and social backgrounds. I also work at a Melbourne-based assessment clinic with children and their families. Outside of work, I enjoy the beach, spending time with family and friends, good coffee and good food.
As a psychologist, I enjoy sharing knowledge about learning new ways to engage with our thoughts and how this can impact on leading a more fulfilling life. In my 9 years of practice, I have worked with children, adolescents and adults. I have a keen interest in working with parents in the perinatal period, supporting you through conception, pregnancy and adjustment to life in your new role as parents. This interest grew from my work with children in the out-of-home care sector, and in recognising the importance of the parent-infant attachment relationship. I believe the mental health of parents is vital to the wellness of the family system which is why I am so passionate about supporting parents in this vulnerable life period. When I am not at work, I love spending time with my two children, getting outdoors, and seeking out new restaurants to try.
Kristal LauPsychologist & Clinical Neuropsychologist
I enjoy working holistically and collaboratively with individuals of all ages and life-stages to make meaning of their circumstances and reach their best selves. I take a person-centred approach while incorporating learnings from psychology and neuroscience to facilitate growth in those I work with. I have worked broadly across the lifespan in various community and clinical settings including; a learning and behaviour disorders clinic, within the out-of-home care sector, and employment services. I am also a research psychologist at the Murdoch Children's Research Institute where I am working on a longitudinal twin study interested in epigenetic and environmental factors that predict cognitive health. Beyond my work, I love long conversations with family and friends, new food experiences, and enjoying a good book in the sunshine.
Dr Eleanor De Ath-MillerPsychologist & Clinical Neuropsychologist
I am passionate about enhancing psychological wellbeing in individuals and communities. I draw on the science of wellbeing to explore new ways of approaching challenging situations with flexibility and hope. This might be living with a chronic medical condition or moving through transitions, such as becoming a parent. I also work in the public health system as a Senior Clinical Neuropsychologist, where I am involved in the diagnosis and care of people with brain conditions, and people with mental health concerns. Outside work I am a big fan of engrossing novels, savouring time with my family and friends, and appreciating the beauty that the arts and nature can bring to our busy lives.
Dr Josie SinniPsychologist & Clinical Neuropsychologist
I work together with my clients to maximise quality of life and believe in evidence-based approaches that can optimise brain health, facilitate change, and assist people to thrive. I have worked as a Psychologist & Clinical neuropsychologist in a range of hospital and community settings providing both assessments and counselling for over 10 years (e.g. assisting people with neurological conditions, adjustment issues and anxiety and mood disorders). I am a senior clinical neuropsychologist at a Melbourne-based assessment and rehabilitation specialist service. Outside of work I love running, going for long walks on the beach, and enjoying quality time with my family.
Dr Kirrily RogersPsychologist & Clinical Neuropsychologist
I work collaboratively with people who are facing new challenges – a medical diagnosis, a change in lifestyle, loss or bereavement - to refocus on their values and develop skills to live alongside these challenges. I also work in a public hospital, primarily with patients and their families, who are affected by progressive neurological diseases (e.g. dementia). I am actively involved in dementia research and use this to inform my clinical practice. In my spare time, I love spending time with my family, travelling, and gardening.
Dr Ann SloanPsychologist & Clinical Neuropsychologist
I enjoy working together with people to understand what is important to them, and to use evidence based psychological approaches to improve and enrich their lives. I have worked in Australia and the United Kingdom across a range of medical and community settings. I am also a Senior Clinical Neuropsychologist at Epworth Hospital working with people with a wide range of medical conditions, often at extremely challenging times in their lives. I have a busy family life and love to travel, explore and challenge myself to live by my values.
