Danya is passionate about helping others to achieve wellbeing. She is also focussed on supporting the development of other psychology professionals, so that they can best help their clients. 

Her clinical experience includes working with adult patients in a private psychiatric clinic, supervising psychologists in training, and conducting psychological assessments for both therapeutic, research and organisational purposes. Danya worked for a number of years facilitating group therapy programs, and has experience working with individuals in brief intervention and longer-term therapy modalities.

Danya has conducted experimental research into cyberbullying and aggression, evaluative research into clinical treatment programs, and co-edited and authored an Australian publication on the effects of media on child development. Coupled with her extensive experience working in the media, Danya has the ideal background to explore the complex media environment and effects on individuals, families, and society.
