Description

Our clinical psychologist and four consultant psychiatrists all have an interest in adult ADHD and collaborate with each other to enhance and monitor your outcomes. Importantly, we know that when it comes to adult ADHD, a history of co-occurring mental health difficulties (e.g., depression, low self-esteem, social anxiety, personality disorder, and/or addiction), and poor functional outcomes (e.g., relationship, work and/or study problems) is often the rule rather than the exception. With this in mind, our multi-faceted treatment approach considers your unique set of clinical needs, rather than simply medication!

The assessment and skills-based therapy is delivered from our Nedlands rooms. After the assessment, you may be referred to one of our consultant psychiatrists Wembley or West Leederville, who will review your psychological assessment results and potentially consider medication options.

Jason is one of only a small number of clinical psychologists in Western Australia who has a particular interest in adult ADHD, having completed a PhD and published/presented in this area. His PhD examined the neuropsychological characteristics of this group (e.g., memory, executive functioning). Jason has also been trained in how to apply cognitive-behavioural therapy to this population by world experts, Rostain and Ramsay (University of Pennsylvania), and prominent adult ADHD coach, Lisa Tuttle (Mindful Self-Management). Since founding this specialty clinic back in 2015, he has worked extensively with adults experiencing ADHD.

Jason also has substantial experience working in general adult mental health with syndromes such as depression, bipolar disorder, social anxiety disorder, panic disorder and addiction. Jason is particularly interested and experienced in delivering schema therapy to people with personality disorders and/or complex PTSD, and is also able to draw on the advanced training he has received in EMDR. In addition to traditional cognitive-behavioural therapy, he is familiar with dialectical behaviour therapy, metacognitive therapy, and motivational interviewing.

Complex diagnostic assessments represent a further area of interest, and Jason has experience providing focused neuropsychological assessments to people experiencing a wide range of psychiatric disorders. He also enjoys working cross-culturally and has presented at international conferences on topics including modifying cognitive-behavioural therapy for use with Muslims and Arabs.

Jason heavily values the scientist-practitioner model and belongs to a number of professional organisations: American Professional Society of ADHD and Related Disorders, UK Adult ADHD Network, and International Society of Schema Therapy.

Jason is able to provide assessments and skills-based therapy in Joondalup and Nedlands. To book an appointment with him at either of these locations, refer to the Book an Appointment box.
