Hello, my name is Dr Anita Tan

I work comfortably with clients who are experiencing relational conflict, substance misuse, complex trauma, emotional management (depression, grief, anger), and cultural adjustment.

I have a deep commitment to working with vulnerable populations from a social justice perspective and utilise a strengths-based and trauma-integrated approach to invite collaborative and co-created outcomes.

Across the clinical roles I have undertaken, I have worked extensively with vulnerable populations comprising adults (including those in diverse priority communities), couples, children, adolescents, people in custody, migrants and refugees, as well as the elderly.

I have a firm respect for working sensitively within different (sub) / cultural contexts, and use a strengths-based approach to invite collaborative work within the therapeutic environment.

My therapeutic approach that I bring into all client-facing communications and interventions is child-focused, client-centred, compassionate, and flexible. I work from a range of clinical frameworks including interpersonal therapy, narrative therapy, and attachment-focused schema therapy.

I am also an approved AHPRA Supervisor.
