(BPsych(Hons), MPsych (Clinical), MAPS)

Codie experience spans private practice, psychiatric wards and within community organisations providing psychological support to children, adolescents and adults.

She firmly believes that therapy is an individualized process and therefore adopts an eclectic approach to therapy, influenced by evidence-based interventions including:

  • Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)
  • Acceptance Commitment Therapy (ACT)
  • Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT).

Codie works in collaboration with individuals (and their support network), to create a space that encompasses honesty, empathy and a supportive working relationship.

She currently sees individuals for therapy who are facing difficulties with depression and mood disorders, anxiety, stress, personality, identity issues, and psychosis along with proving support those who are neurodivergent, including people who are diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD).

An accredited provider for the Cool Kids Anxiety program, Codie also conducts cognitive , autism and ADHD assessments.

Clients of all ages are welcome from referral avenues including Mental Health Treatment Plans (Medicare), the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) and privately. Appointments are conducted in person and via telephone (teletherapy).

A message from Codie

Having based myself in Melbourne, I decided it was time to move back to my hometown Albury to fulfill a passion for improving access to mental health services in regional and rural areas. Joining Centacare made sense as I believe they are the right organisation for me to reach this goal.

In my therapy space, I aim to provide warmth, honesty and genuine connection and believe that in order to make progress you need to find a good fit with your psychologist. This is at the forefront of my psychological practice.

An advocate for work­-life balance and self-care, in my personal time you’ll find me paddle boarding with my dog, training in Muay Thai, cooking or spending time with friends and family.
