Keira is a Psychologist who enjoys working with adult clients, both individually and in couples. Given her experience and training as a Paramedic, in a crisis intervention role and with Critical Incident Debriefing (CID); she is able to effectively work with clients at risk and with individuals who have concurrent medical concerns.
Keira has a particular interest in working with 'diverse people' - those who are neurodiverse (on the autism spectrum, ADD, ADHD), are part of the LGBTQIAPK+ population, are gifted, and/or those who are in/interested in alternate relationship structures. She also has experience, interest, and training in working with people who have experienced trauma.
Keira is passionate about guiding and supporting clients in therapy to uncover what may be driving unhelpful behaviours, learn strategies to approach situations differently and facilitate personal growth through treatment. In her work, she develops and implements tailored treatment plans to assist individuals who are experiencing a range of mental health issues. Keira strongly believes that clients should be encouraged to take an active role in their treatment, recovery, and ongoing management of their health.
Keira utilises a range of evidence-based interventions and individualises treatment plans based on client goals and priorities.
Keira’s approach to working with clients is collaborative, flexible, warm and genuine.
Keira is a Registered Provider with Medicare.
When Keira is not working, she is spending time with her family (including 2 rescue cats and 2 mini lop rabbits), reading, cooking, gardening, dancing, or practicing yoga.
