Liz has a PhD in Clinical Psychology and undergraduate degrees in Criminology and Criminal Justice and in Psychological Science (Hons I). Prior to and during her Clinical Psychology training, Liz worked for over 12 years at Brisbane Universities in teaching and research roles. In addition to her role at Wellbeing in Mind, Liz works as the Manager of Data Analytics and Evaluation with Queensland Health (Metro North Mental Health). 

Liz has a special interest in neurodevelopmental assessments and is trained in a range of neuropsychological tools to support assessments across the life-course. She has substantial experience with many different presentations, including: Autism, Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder, Foetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder, learning difficulties, cognitive and executive function difficulties, and general childhood development (e.g., Global Developmental Delay). 

 

Liz is passionate about providing a neuroaffirming approach to assessment and treatment, and she fosters this passion through ongoing professional development and training in this space. Her practice is informed by the social model of disability, which attributes disability to a ‘misfit’ between the person and their environment rather than deficits within the person.  

 

Liz is also passionate about using evidence-based intervention in her therapy with clients. She holistically views people as situated within multiple systems that can influence wellbeing and development, all of which she considers in her assessment and treatment approach. She is trained and has experience in a range of therapeutic approaches, with a particular interest in Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Compassion Focused Therapy (CFT), Schema Therapy, Interpersonal Therapy (IPT), attachment-informed approaches, and trauma-informed approaches. She takes a client-centred and collaborative approach to therapy, aiming to provide a non-judgemental and supportive space to treat a wide range of psychological issues.
