About Me

I am a clinical psychologist and psychotherapist whose practice is rooted in feminist and relational psychoanalytic traditions. As a mental health researcher, I work on the link between marginalisation and mental health and on universal access to health services, considering technology as a key reducer of access barriers. My main interest is to construct equitable research relationships in which members of historically silenced groups are involved in developing research questions, methods, and forms of knowledge dissemination.
