Sara is a Registered Psychologist who holds a Master’s degree in Clinical Neuropsychology, undertaken at The University of Melbourne. Sara’s undergraduate qualifications include a Bachelor of Psychology (Cognitive Neuroscience) (Honours), as well as a Bachelor of Medical Radiation Science (Nuclear Medicine), both completed at The University of South Australia.
Sara embodies warmth, empathy, and a steadfast commitment to helping each patient manage the difficulties they may be experiencing in everyday life. Driven by a sincere desire to support her patients, Sara prioritises actively listening to each individual’s story and applies an individualised, holistic approach that takes into account each person’s unique personality, values and experiences. Sara’s goal is to understand the root cause of each individual’s difficulties, and to devise strategies and interventions that will help each patient live a life they find personally meaningful and fulfilling.
With a specialised focus on cognitive assessments, particularly within the area of neurodevelopmental conditions, Sara approaches evaluations through a lens of strengths, valuing the diversity of neurological experiences. Sara utilises a range of tools to explore conditions such as ADHD, autism, and specific learning disorders, empowering clients to understand their cognitive strengths and weaknesses, and tailoring recommendations that resonate with each individual’s needs. Sara enjoys working with patient’s across the lifespan, and providing support to children, adolescents, and adults as they navigate the challenges unique to their life stage.
With a background in both clinical work and research, Sara's broader interests span the impact of lifestyle factors, such as diet, exercise, and engagement in mentally stimulating activities on cognitive function, as well as the connection between gut and brain health. Sara is passionate about understanding brain-behaviour relationships, and the impact of neurological conditions on cognitive function and psychological wellbeing.
