"Patient-centred means being respectful of and responsive to my client's preferences, needs and values... and ensuring those guide our decisions".

I’m a GP with a passion for women’s health, and sexual and reproductive health.

I believe in holistic, patient-centred care and provide consultations on a broad range of conditions including all aspects of contraception, fertility, pregnancy, menopause, menstrual disorders, cervical screening, vulval disorders, breast health, erectile dysfunction and many other sexual health issues.


I collaborate with several of Sydney's best public hospitals to provide Shared Antenatal Care and love being a part of the amazing pregnancy journey with my clients.  


I'm also kept busy attending to many procedures at Clinic 66 including: Implanon NXT insertion or removal, IUD insertion or removal, endometrial biopsy, diaphragm fitting, vulval biopsy, Mona Lisa Touch and more

I have a particular interest in menopause, and feel strongly that women should be able to access expert help at this often difficult time in their lives. 


I provide a supportive, holistic and individualised approach to each woman's concerns, and can offer a variety of treatment options, including HRT, non-hormonal therapies and lifestyle approaches. 


I am passionate about helping women to retain enjoyable and fulfilling sex lives beyond the menopause, so I have training and experience in offering MonaLisa Touch laser treatment, along with other treatment options to help with painful sex or other sexual difficulties. 

'I believe in taking time to hear each client's story and concerns, and I provide a friendly, non-judgmental and empathic approach.  As a client, I want you to feel heard and understood, and feel confident that I will take a thorough approach to your individual situation.'
