Dr Daniela De FazioPsychologist and Clinical Neuropsychologist I am available on Thursdays in Essendon
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 DavisPsychologist and Clinical Neuropsychologist I am not currently taking new clients
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 and a cofounder of shelfy.com.au. 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.
Dr Ann SloanPsychologist and Clinical Neuropsychologist I am available on Tuesdays in Camberwell
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 currently also a Senior Clinical Neuropsychologist at Epworth Hospital where I work with people with a wide range of medical conditions at often extremely challenging times in their lives. As well as being passionate about psychology, I have a busy family life and love to travel, explore and challenge myself to live by my values.
Dr Kirrily RogersPsychologist and Clinical Neuropsychologist I am not currently taking new clients
I enjoy working collaboratively with people across the lifespan who are facing new challenges – a medical diagnosis, a change in lifestyle, a loss or bereavement - to refocus on their values and develop skills to live alongside these challenges. I currently work in a public hospital primarily with patients and families who are affected by progressive neurological diseases (e.g., dementia). I am also 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 Eleanor De Ath-MillerPsychologist and Clinical Neuropsychologist I am available on Thursdays in Essendon
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 and Clinical Neuropsychologist I am available on Fridays and Saturdays in Essendon
I am passionate about maximising 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 and clinical neuropsychologist in a range of hospital and community settings providing both assessments and counselling for over 10 years (for instance, assisting people with neurological conditions, anxiety and mood disorders, and adjustment issues). I am also 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.
Megan MellingtonPsychologist I am available Monday to Wednesday in Essendon
My passion as a psychologist comes from sharing the 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 in the adjustment to life in your new role as parents. This interest grew out of my initial work with children in the out of home care sector, and 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.
Carly JamesPsychologist and Clinical Neuropsychology Registrar I am available Mondays and Tuesdays in Essendon
I am interested in working with others to develop a collaborative space for understanding, growth and practical problem solving. I am passionate about utilising evidence-based practice to understand brain functioning and how it can impact on day to day life. I have worked with people across the lifespan, with a range of different challenges and goals. I also work at a Melbourne-based assessment clinic with families whose children may be experiencing cognitive, developmental, behavioural or emotional difficulties. Outside of work, I enjoy the beach, spending time with family and friends, good coffee and good food.
Kristal LauPsychologist and Clinical Neuropsychologist I am available Wednesdays and Thursdays in Essendon
I enjoy working holistically and collaboratively with individuals of all ages and 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 in employment services. I am also a research psychologist at the Murdoch Children's Research Institute where I am part of 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.
