Talia’s research focusses on better understanding borderline personality disorder, locus of control (i.e. our sense of personal agency), traumatic experiences, and attachment styles (i.e., how we interact and develop relationships with one another).
In addition to research, Talia has extensive experience in delivering evidence-based psychological therapies and has a particular interest in working with children, adolescents, and young adults, but has comprehensive experience working with adults of all ages.
Talia is committed to assisting her clients achieve their goals and milestones, develop a sense of control and security within oneself, acquire skills and techniques to better manage difficult situations, and improve overall wellbeing. She can help you build an understanding of your difficulties, while working collaboratively with you to learn strategies to handle these experiences and prevent future concerns.
Talia welcomes individuals of all gender identities and sexual orientations, with a strong focus on empowering LGBT+ individuals and other minorities. She promotes an open, non-judgmental, and positive environment and ensures her clients’ safety and comfort come first.
