My name is Janet, and I’m a psychologist at the Rosy Room on Mondays and Tuesdays.

I’ve worked with people of all ages. Whatever stage of life you’re in, I believe that getting support for your mental health makes you brave and strong. The vulnerability of opening up to someone can seem daunting, but staying where you are might be more daunting. I provide my clients with a safe and non-judgemental space to be vulnerable, to be honest with yourself and to be brave. Together, we’ll help you feel safe in making changes to feel more connected with what you want your life to be and with your loved ones.

My experience as a psychologist has been in the public and private sector. I have a specialty background of working with forensic clients (e.g., victims of crime, child protection referrals, and those who’ve been convicted of crime). I have over 6+ years’ experience in trauma-informed care. When I work with families, I believe in collaborating with parents to help them feel empowered in supporting their child to navigate emotional and behavioural challenges. 

This means I’ve worked with:

  • Family and relationship challenges (e.g., parenting skills, attachment-trauma, PTSD and complex PTSD, domestic and family violence)
  • Overwhelming emotions (e.g., depression, bipolar, anxiety);
  • Behavioural challenges and disorders (e.g., oppositional defiant disorder, conduct disorder, childhood ADHD, offence-desistance therapy);
  • Personality vulnerabilities and disorders (e.g., early-onset borderline personality disorder, antisocial personality disorder)
  • Addiction (e.g., gambling, alcohol and substance misuse)

For my clients, I use therapy approaches that best fit your needs and circumstances. I have training in therapy approaches that are evidence-based and help you feel motivated to change difficult behaviours that are stopping you from living the life you want (e.g., CBT, TF-CBT, DBT, Schema, CFT, Narrative). If you know the therapy modality you would like, I’m happy to collaborate with you on this. 

I look forward to meeting you and working together.

Vladana Brkic - Registered Psychologist

Qualifications and Training

  • Full registration as a Psychologist with the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (AHPRA)
  • Bachelor of Psychological Science, Griffith University
  • Graduate Diploma in Psychology, Australian Catholic University

Hello and welcome! 

My name is Vladana and I am a registered psychologist. I see adolescents (14+ years) and adults experiencing a range of diagnosed and/or general life difficulties. These include depression, anxiety, personality vulnerabilities, trauma, addictions, relational difficulties, self-esteem, identity concerns, and life transitions. 

My preferred approach to therapy is greatly influenced by psychodynamic/psychoanalytic therapy. This approach seeks to uncover and understand the meaning of behaviour as a means of creating conscious and lasting change. Based on your unique reasons for coming to therapy, I may integrate complementary approaches such as emotion-focused therapy, acceptance and commitment therapy, and compassion focused therapy. You can think of this process as a collaborative exploration of your unique inner world, and relationship to self and others. Together, we will embark on the therapeutic journey with curiosity, kindness and compassion. Along the way, we will uncover important clues in the form of emotions,  thoughts, memories, desires or abandoned parts of the self. By taking the time to understand yourself intimately, you will discover greater potential for feeling, acceptance, vitality and hope.

I hope that my commitment to your therapeutic process means that you feel seen, valued, and held – in heart and mind.

Hello and thank you for letting me introduce myself. My name is Vivian and I am a
registered psychologist. I enjoy getting to know the person you are and what brings
you to The Rosy Room. From there, we will work together to better understand and
navigate any challenges you may have.

I have over 10 years of extensive experience working with young people over the
age of 12 and adults with a wide variety of clinical presentations including anxiety,
mood disorders, stress, interpersonal difficulties, trauma, grief and loss, chronic
health conditions and more. There is no one-size-fits-all approach to therapy. My
approach utilises a range of evidence-based interventions such as Cognitive
Behavioural Therapy, Acceptance Commitment Therapy, Schema Therapy,
Interpersonal Therapy, Mindfulness, Motivational Interviewing, and Dialectical
Behaviour Therapy to tailor treatment plan to your specific needs and goals.

It can be quite overwhelming and confusing when seeking help. Finding the right fit
for you can have a positive impact on the treatment outcome. I consider myself as an
empathic, warm and genuine therapist that you can feel safe and respected when
you share your vulnerability with me. I will work patiently with you at your pace to
achieve your therapeutic goals and provide you gentle encouragement where
necessary.

Thank you for stopping by and I look forward to meeting you at The Rosy Room.

My name’s Nicole, I’m a Provisional Psychologist and work every Wednesday at the Rosy Room.

I started my journey to become a psychologist 11 years ago and over the past few years, I have pursued a diverse range of opportunities to expand my knowledge in the field. I have interned in a private clinic with clients of all ages, worked in a community mental health facility with adults, and more recently with young people in a forensic setting.

I am completing my final year of training, which means I am considered an early career psychologist. I am passionate about mental health and will always see you as more than the single choices you have made in life. While I recognise how rich and meaningful life can be, I also know that no one gets out of life unscathed. Regardless of where you currently are in life, you have braved the first difficult first step and acknowledged to yourself that something must change.

I work with clients of all ages and particularly enjoy working with adolescents, aged 12 and over. I collaborate and work alongside my clients because I understand that finding the right therapist is one of the best predictors for your success. I believe shame dies when you have a safe, non-judgmental, and trauma-informed space to tell your story. My role is to support my clients to feel empowered and recognize patterns of behaviours that are leading them away from a meaningful life.

When it comes to my approach, I don’t believe one size fits all. I tailor my approach to your specific needs, utilizing frameworks such as Cognitive-Behavioural Therapy and Acceptance Commitment Therapy.

Thanks for taking the time to read more about me. I wish you all the best moving forward and I hope to work with you at the Rosy Room.

Hi there.  I’m delighted to have the opportunity to introduce myself and then meet and collaborate with you at The Rosy Room.  My name is Courtney and I have 15 years of experience working across research, academic, private and community sectors.  I enjoy working with young adults (i.e., 14 years and above) and adults to support them in reaching their goals and use numerous evidence-based treatments including Cognitive-Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Mindfulness, Sensory Modulation, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), and Compassion-Focused Therapy (CFT).  I am also informed by Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT) and Schema Therapy (ST).

I believe in neuroaffirming practice for neurodivergent people and can assist families in liaising with schools regarding the implementation of such into individualised learning plans.  I can also help with mood disturbance/emotion regulation difficulties, anxiety/intrusive thoughts, bullying and school avoidance, self-harm/suicidal ideation, poor self-concept, sexuality and gender questioning, grief and bereavement, and trauma.  I realise that you will bring your own strengths, intentions, and wisdom to therapy and hope to build on these with you.

Outside of The Rosy Room, I have maintained volunteer work since University.  Previously I have volunteered through St Vincent de Paul for interventions such as Safer Families and the Family Plus Initiative.  I continue to volunteer for Girl Guides Queensland where I am a Leader of a Lilly Pilly Guide Unit.

If you think we may be able to work together to better understand what is happening for you and then find ways to work towards the life you wish to have, feel free to call The Rosy Room.  I work at The Rosy Room on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays. Thank you for your time.

Hi there! My name’s Dan, I’m a Clinical Psychologist who’s excited to start working with people in need. When people work with me, the most common feedback I hear is the appreciation for our strong therapeutic relationship. Naturally, this is underpinned by establishing a safe, trusting, and relaxing environment where people can feel heard and understood. 

I pride myself on providing care to clients that is both genuine and flexible. The things that I value most in offering therapy is knowing when to just listen and when someone needs to be “called-out” or challenged. Another piece of therapy which is often useful is a process-oriented approach in which we will often reflect and analyse together what’s going on in the here-and-now moment. 

I work predominantly with teens and adults (15years+) in an individual capacity. Therapy with myself is flexible and can be short-term or long-term but whatever that decision is you can trust that I will make the time to get to know you and your situation deeply before we make that decision collaboratively. I enjoy and have experience working with a wide-variety of presentations, including interpersonal, mood, anxiety, personality, identity, self-esteem and trauma related issues.  

Prior to working in Private Practice for the past several years, I’ve also had experience working at the Child Mental Health Inpatient Unit at the Queensland’s Children’s Hospital, as well as the Oncology and Palliative Care Unit at The Prince Charles Hospital. Whilst working in these different settings I’ve developed an eclectic therapeutic approach that integrates Schema, Psychodynamics, Acceptance and Commitment, and Cognitive-Behavioural Therapy approaches.

Whether you decide to work with me, another clinician or not at all I know that looking into therapy for yourself can be a difficult process so thank you for your time.

Hi, I am Jotham but feel free to call me JJ. I am a Clinical Psychologist at The Rosy Room, and I want to welcome you to this great practice.

I have experience working with clients across the lifespan and I operate from an evidence-based perspective and tailor my approach specific to each person’s individual needs and presentation. I work from a biopsychosocial perspective where I carefully consider each person’s presentation from their unique biological, psychological, and social factors that contributes to their experience.

In my approach, I draw from Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Motivational Interviewing (MI), Mindfulness Techniques, and Emotion Freedom Techniques (EFT; also known as Tapping).

As a therapist, I consider myself warm and welcoming, and you can expect me to treat you with the dignity and respect that everyone deserves. I will meet you wherever you are in this moment and work with you towards improving your mental health and leading a more fulfilling life. You can expect me to be transparent with you, listen attentively and non-judgementally, work with you towards shared goals that is in your best interest, and always treat you as a person and not a condition. I am genuinely interested in helping my clients and I continuously strive to improve my clinical skillset to provide the best possible service that I can.

I work with a range of emotional, psychological, and behavioural disorders, but I also work with people simply looking to better manage stress, improve their productivity, improve interpersonal relationships, improve their self-esteem, or maintain healthy psychological functioning. I also offer psychological assessments available through The Rosy Room.

Thank you for visiting The Rosy Room, and I look forward to meeting you.

Hello, my name is Nadia and I am a registered clinical psychologist here at The Rosy Room. I feel privileged that I get to see the people I see and do the work that I do here!

Currently I work across the lifespan with adolescents and adults. I see people who require support with anxiety, depression, relationship and interpersonal issues, emotional regulation concerns, study or exam stress, perfectionism and more. I draw on evidence-based therapies including cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), dialectical behavioural therapy (DBT), interpersonal therapy (IPT), and acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT). I have also worked across the mental health, disability, and community sector for the past 9 years in various other roles. 

My approach is warm, interested, and empathetic. I provide a non-judgmental and relaxed space for you to discuss your concerns. I am interested in knowing what you want to achieve out of therapy, so I can offer strategies and skills to help. When working with me you will be supported and treated with respect. You will also be encouraged to reflect, be curious, and challenge yourself, so that you can build insight and grow. Each person is different, so we can adjust treatment and pace, depending on what you need.

Hi there, thanks for taking the time to stop by. I guess you’re here because something in life doesn’t feel great at the moment. Firstly, good on you for recognising and owning that. Secondly, take a deep breath… help is on the way.

My name is Jessica and I am the owner of The Rosy Room. I am super passionate about caring for people and working alongside my clients to help achieve wellness. It is the biggest privilege to do this kind of work and I feel very honoured to sit with my clients and witness tales of utter strength and resilience. Sitting in the raw, juicy, real, human stuff is my thing and I invite you to join me in that, if it so calls you.

My therapeutic approach is very warm, personable and human centred. You are not your symptoms or condition. You are a human with your strengths and challenges. My work with you is about highlighting habits that are not serving you and energising action that will propel you into the place you truly belong.

I draw on skills through a wide range of therapeutic approaches including Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Mindfulness based Cognitive Therapy and Compassion Focussed Therapy. You come in as the expert in your life and I join you on your journey of growth as the expert in psychotherapy, and together we find your edge, your patterns, your calling, and what feels like home to you.

I work with adult clients over the age of 18, and I have experience in treating a wide variety of mental health conditions. However, you do not need to have a mental illness to see me, you might just be lost or stuck and in need of some guidance (or a gentle push). I can help you to find time in your life to fit in what’s important, to mend or leave an unhealthy relationship, to find courage to pursue your dreams, to create a healthy relationship with food and your body, or to transition into a new role such as motherhood. No problem is too big or too small.

My favourite areas to work in are-

  1. self-esteem and confidence in women– developing self-love and acceptance, learning boundaries and assertive communication skills, kicking perfectionism to the curb.
  2. Managing Health, weight and body image issues- creating a healthy relationship with food and your body through self-compassion, mindful eating and nourishing movement.

If this calls you, you’re ready. Let’s begin the work. It might be tough, but trust me, going inwards and doing the work is worth it.

P.s. I am not interested in working with clients who are not ready to take self responsibility- if I notice this I will call you out on it. Yes I can be your guide but ultimately you will be doing the work to change your life.

P.p.s If you would like to get a better feel for me you can check me out on my instagram page @rosyretreats.

Hi, I’m Kirsty, a registered psychologist at The Rosy Room.
I’m delighted that you’re considering seeking support for yourself or someone you care for.

In my practice, I work with children (aged 6 and above), adolescents, and adults. I understand the unique developmental needs and challenges faced by different age groups and adapt interventions to be age-appropriate and effective.

From the moment you arrive, you’ll step into a safe and nurturing space, where you’re free to explore your thoughts, emotions, and experiences. With an emphasis on acceptance, I wholeheartedly embrace each client’s journey without judgment. I create a comfortable environment that encourages self-exploration and growth, as we work together to address your concerns, gain deeper insights, and develop practical strategies to overcome challenges. I firmly believe in your inner strength and resilience, and I’m here to guide and empower you.

I believe that therapy can be a transformative process that doesn’t have to be serious all the time. Incorporating a playful element into our sessions, I foster a sense of curiosity, creativity, and lightness. This approach encourages you to engage with therapy in a way that feels enjoyable and empowering.

My integrative therapeutic style draws from various evidence-based therapeutic approaches, including cognitive-behavioural therapy (CBT), emotionally-focused therapy (EFT), and compassion-based approaches. Using interventions tailored to your specific needs, we navigate challenges such as anxiety, depression, behavioural issues, and self-esteem difficulties. This personalised approach allows us to find the methods that resonate with you best, facilitating meaningful and lasting change.

If you think I might be the right fit for you, take the first step towards positive change by scheduling a consultation today. I am excited to meet you and embark on this meaningful work together.

Hello, my name is Alyssa and I am a Clinical Psychologist. I currently work with adolescent and adult clients across a wide variety of presentations including depression, anxiety, stress, interpersonal and communication challenges, post-traumatic stress disorder and a range of other emotional concerns. I also work with individuals who may feel lost in their journey with no specific emotional problem, but feel they need a helping hand in order to become a better version of themselves. I believe the most important aspect of therapy is to create a safe and collaborative relationship that is warm and personable.

I am very passionate about health, wellness and finding a holistic treatment method to help my clients. I believe there is no one size fits all in therapeutic approaches. I endeavour to help my clients develop a greater understanding of themselves, feel more empowered, and make lasting changes.

My approach to sessions is relaxed and human centred. I patiently work with clients, sitting alongside them through difficult times and giving them the gentle encouragement they may need. I consider it an honour to be given the opportunity to support my clients in living a more meaningful life.

Equally so, I find enjoyment in experiencing the life-changing revelations that come from the exploration of oneself. My warmth and presence in the sharing of your journey is natural and intentional.

It can be both a challenging and enriching process to work through your difficulties or obstacles, towards your dreams. I will always have your goals in mind as I support you to live a wholesome life by:

  • deepening your understanding of yourself,
  • accepting and integrating aspects of yourself
  • enjoying positive relationships,
  • feeling safe and confident to explore your world,
  • finding meaning in your days,
  • developing strategies to overcome difficult aspects of your life, and
  • embracing your individuality and uniqueness.

I’ll work with you to create a picture of what you would like to achieve from our time together, and I’ll be guided by you, so that we are both looking in the same direction. If you are a couple or a family, we will be working together so that everybody can feel that they have a say in where things are going. I’ll also regularly check in with you to get a sense of how useful therapy is for you. This may change from session to session.

I have an eclectic range of interests within the mental health world. My work with you will draw on techniques and frameworks which are relevant to your reasons for coming to therapy and your therapy goals. These will include psychodynamic psychotherapy, schema therapy, attachment principles, mindfulness-based practices, cognitive behaviour therapy and for couples, Gottman Couples Therapy interventions.

Before my work at The Rosy Room I have worked psychologically with children, adolescents and families experiencing a range of mental health difficulties including addiction, trauma, abuse and neglect, attachment problems, parenting, grief and bereavement, anxiety and depression. For many years I also worked in a more corporate capacity, coordinating organisational and cultural change across urban and rural hospitals and health services.

I look forward to meeting you and discovering with you, for as long, or as little as you need.

Lc King - Front Desk Admin and Client Support

Hey! My name is Lc

I am so pleased to be able to make you feel welcome here at The Rosy Room.

I am currently working my way through my Bachelor of Behavioural Science (Psychology) at QUT. My passion for learning about and understanding psychology began while I was completing my Bachelor of Criminology and Criminal Justice. I believe that learning to understand the inner workings of the mind can truly facilitate a greater understanding of oneself and those around them.

Something that I love about working here at The Rosy Room is that I am able to invite people in, in whatever way they need. It’s so exciting to be able to greet new and unique people everyday and do what I can to make them feel at home.

Karen Hundloe - Front Desk Admin and Client Support

Hello, my name is Karen, and I feel proud to be a member of the warm and friendly team here at The Rosy Room. It is a privilege to welcome you into such a caring and nurturing environment, and I hope I can help you feel relaxed and comfortable at each visit.

After many years of working directly with people in various roles, I realised my passion for understanding more about the genuine inner person we all are. This led to me enrolling in Bachelor of Psychology (Honours), which I am currently working through and thoroughly enjoying.

When I’m not studying or working, you can often find me in nature somewhere, whether it be trail running, hiking, or camping. When I am relaxing, I love to spend time hanging out with my family.

Thank you for taking the time to read a bit about me, and I look forward to chatting with you at The Rosy Room.
