ANZAED Eating Disorder Credential


Karen is delighted to be part of Tikvah Clinic and provides collaborative medical care and consultation on an as-needs basis.

Karen practices person-centred psychologically-informed medicine and works part time in general practice alongside this specialist practice. She is interested in chronic complex medical conditions including eating disorders and has expertise in mental health, youth health and trauma-informed care.

Above all she values collaborating with like-minded psychologists and other health practitioners as she understands that the more the team communicates and is on the same page, the better the care and outcome is for the patient/consumer.

As far as Eating Disorders go, she believes that they are an example of a situation where the mind and body are equally important and interconnected and that the provision of respectful, informed, collaborative medical care is vital in treatment and recovery.

Karen provides consultations at Tikvah Clinic. Please note this is a Specialist General Practice and as such does not provide after hours or emergency appointments.
