She completed a Master of Applied Psychology (Counselling) at the University of Queensland, and is experienced in working with individuals across the lifespan in private practice and school settings. She has a particular interest in the areas of anxiety, depression, drug and alcohol concerns, grief and loss, sleep and social skills.
Vinita has developed and facilitated group programs for children and adolescents with mood disturbances and social difficulties, and with adults to manage insomnia and practice relaxation.
