    As a Health Psychologist with advanced training in criminology and forensic mental health, Rebecca practices within her specialisation by working with clients of disadvantaged backgrounds to address dysregulated behaviour (e.g., sexual, general and intimate family violence), substance misuse, and mental health difficulties. Those with offending histories are generally characterised by complex and multifaceted mental health problems; experience poor health outcomes, elevated rates of suicide, drug overdose, and mortality. In consultation with the client and relevant stakeholders, she aims to support clients to develop specialised strategies for modifying offending behaviour, and to work collaboratively to promote effective participation in mental health treatment and recovery.
