About us

Melissa began her career as a psychologist in 1998 having completed her Honours thesis on ADHD and her Masters thesis on Autism and Asperger’s under the guidance and supervision of the amazing Prof. Bruce Tonge. Over the years Melissa has shared her expertise not only with her client community but with many of the psychologists she has trained and supervised. Melissa’s expertise is highly sought after by local Paediatricians, GPs and schools leading to high demand which prompted Melissa to open Solution Psychology as a group practice in 2012. Since then, Melissa has expanded her team and built a practice staying true to her strong values, being regarded as leaders in the field of paediatric psychology.
