Kam provides comprehensive assessments and ongoing management for adolescents, young adults and adults. She is dedicated to youth mental health and early intervention; working together with patients to improve wellbeing and function. Her most recent role was providing psychiatric services at headspace Camperdown for the 12-25 year old age group.
She has previously worked for Sydney Local Health District at both Royal Prince Alfred and Concord Hospitals; providing both inpatient and outpatient psychiatric care across all age groups for those with mood, anxiety, psychotic, personality and substance use disorders. She recently incorporated her dog, Bo into canine co-therapy sessions at headspace with considerably positive outcomes; particularly for those presenting with depressive, anxiety, autism spectrum disorders or a history of trauma.
Kam is able to provide both shorter and longer term therapy; using a cognitive behaviour therapy (CBT), supportive or psychodynamic approach. Kam believes that building rapport and confidence in the therapeutic relationship are vital for working toward recovery. Whilst opinions and recommendations will be discussed, the treatment plan will be considered and agreed upon together. Please inform the team if you think Bo’s presence would be helpful and would like to request he attend your appointment.
