Darcy is passionate about working with individuals across the lifespan (8 years old +) as well as various population groups. Darcy strongly believes that everyone has the potential and power to constantly grow and be the person they want to be. Darcy has a particular interest in working with individuals experiencing issues with identity (including working with the LGBTQIAPK+ population), eating disorders (including anorexia nervosa, bulimia), trauma related issues (including PTSD) and working with neurodivergent clients (including ASD, ADD, ADHD).
Alongside Darcy’s clinical work, she works in a health management role in organisational psychology where she delivers training and psychoeducation to staff members focussing on optimising mental health and wellbeing at an individual and organisational level.
Darcy is currently training her 2 year old groodalier (Golden retriever x poodle x cavalier king Charles) to work with her during counselling sessions as part of Animal Assisted Therapy. Darcy is hopeful that Alfie the pup will be ready to do this soon!
