“We often overestimate the threats we face and underestimate the opportunities, strengths and skills we already have to solve our problems. We may engage in avoidance or safety behaviours that only offer temporary relief by perpetuating the difficulties. In therapy, we will work together to unpack things and build your skills and resilience gradually and consistently.”
Meitty is a child and adolescent psychologist who works with children (aged 5 and up), adolescents, adults and families. With strong expertise in child clinical psychology, she treats school-aged children and their families, across a wide range of issues including ASD, separation anxiety, parenting, school issues, cognitive assessments, behaviour management, shyness and social skills deficits. She also works with young adults and adults with various abilities and presentations, including ADHD, anxiety disorders, depression, low self-esteem, body image issues, stress management, grief and loss, suicide prevention, assertiveness training and career support.
Meitty migrated from Indonesia in 2005 and has been practising as a registered psychologist in Australia for more than a decade. She helps young people and their families utilise their strengths to overcome their challenges. She is particularly passionate about treating young people with diverse abilities as well as their family’s dynamic and mental wellbeing. Meitty is currently pursuing her second Master’s degree – a Master of Autism – to further equip herself in supporting her clients.
Meitty aims to meet her young clients where they’re at and puts them in the centre of her work. She works collaboratively with them and their families towards specific and achievable goals, within a mutually agreed period of time.
In her sessions, Meitty uses a strength-based approach and various evidence-based modalities, such as Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT), Narrative Play Therapy, Motivational Interviewing and Solution Focused Brief Therapy. When working with children, she often adapts CBT techniques through play or activities, to help them understand big concepts such as emotions and ways to manage them. When appropriate, she also provides psychoeducation to parents, explaining the purpose of the activities and providing practical ideas on how to incorporate those activities into their daily routines.
Meitty is constantly inspired and humbled as she witnesses the growth of her young clients and their progress towards their goals. She feels deeply privileged to be part of their journey of becoming more resilient and hopeful about the future.
When she’s not working, Meitty enjoys spending time with her children, either playing Lego, crafting or bike riding. She also loves gardening, learning new things and hopes to have a dog one day.
