    About Therapist

    Please note, Angelica can have over a 2-month wait for new clients. Please contact us for availability.

    This Hart Clinical Psychologist has substantial experience in relationship counselling, and certifications in intimacy, sexual, and relationship issues. She has helped hundreds of couples to overcome emotional distance, issues with desire, sexual problems, affairs, high conflict and cross-cultural marriage problems.

    Couples are encouraged to use homework exercises she provides to actively engage with one another, which increases the benefits of therapy work. She regularly suggests specific exercises, books, readings, videoclips, podcasts, and games.

    She is also passionate about helping people regain self worth, process trauma, and manage difficult personalities.

    In addition to her over 20 year’s experience in the public and private sectors, she is a published researcher and has presented at conferences and workshops.

    When she is not sharing her time between her clients, supervisees, and charity work, she prioritizes self care and family, as a wife, and mother of two children.

    She is available for appointments relating to relationship and marriage counselling in Sydney, pre-marriage counselling, sexual difficulties, problematic pornography use, anger management, narcissism, and phone and skype appointments.

    How many years counselling experience do you have?

    Over 20 years.

    What are three strengths you have as a Psychologist/Counsellor?
    1. Easy to connect to which facilitates the therapeutic relationship fundamental to good outcomes
    2. Present approach providing authentic, deeper, richer connection
    3. Additional training in relationship and couple therapy
    What is the most satisfying and fulfilling part of the work you do?

    It is the fact that I am always exchanging with my clients. I feel honoured to be at times the first person they opened up about a serious trauma or something they feel very ashamed of . I feel enlighten by their growth and how they teach me how to be a better human myself.

    What’s an example of a couple you have helped the most?

    A couple discovering that love can feel different, have specific individual meaning. There is great emotional maturity that comes from this understanding. Deeper emotional connection requires respect and appreciation both sources of comfort and security – all that humans wish for.
