Lettitia has been practicing as a Psychologist for 20 years. Much of her experience has been in perinatal mental health working in both the public (Mother-Baby residential unit) and private sector. Lettitia started her journey with Gidget Foundation Australia as a Clinician working at Gidget House North Sydney since its establishment and has been in private practice on Sydney’s North Shore since 2013.
In addition to perinatal mental health, Lettitia works in the areas of adult mental health including anxiety, depression, life transition and adjustment, with a special interest in working with adults who have a history of complex trauma and helping them transition and navigate the complexities inherent in the adjustment to parenthood.
Using a biopsychosocial approach to assessment, she likes to work closely with other health professionals in her client’s network to ensure the best possible outcomes. Therapeutically Lettitia uses a multimodal, integrative approach to therapy. Whilst drawing on the richness of the current psychodynamic approaches, she utilises ACT, DBT, Mindfulness, Solution focused and Trauma informed interventions including Schema therapy and EMDR.
As a Clinical Supervisor the aim is to work collaboratively and to provide a safe, supportive environment to encourage clinical and personal development.
