Isabelle is a registered psychologist and brings to DS Psychology Group a professional and engaging warmth in which to engage adolescents, youth and adults. She has experience in providing assessment and psychological interventions to clients and has experience in working with clients in community and educational settings.

Isabelle has a keen interest to help adolescent and young adult clients with the developmental challenges that can present at this stage, such as friendship and family issues, identity concerns, bullying, social anxiety and academic stress. She is also able to help adult clients, in particular, those who are experiencing depression, anxiety and OCD, transition and change, relationship issues, grief and loss, and those who have suffered trauma.

Isabelle has a passion for helping clients overcome their difficulties and develop helpful strategies to manage and cope more effectively. She also believes it is important to help clients build self-awareness and insight into their difficulties, and to provide an empathetic, understanding and safe therapeutic environment.
