Dani is a psychologist with over 15 years experience across a range of areas, including corrections, health, police and defence.  She has worked in private practice for several years, assisting adults to improve their mental health and general wellbeing.

Dani has a special interest in Defence, Veteran and First-Responders mental health, and has worked in this field for the past 10 years. She currently offers support to current serving ADF members (approved provider for ADF Health Services BUPA), veterans (via DVA) and first-responders for a variety of issues, including trauma-related mental health.
