Child and Family Psychologist

Child and Family Psychologist

Stacey Joyce supports children, young people and their parents to address child development issues, difficulties with social skills, and behavioural concerns.

With more than 15 years working with families, Stacey is recognised as an expert in child development, with particular experience in early childhood intervention (0-6 years)—supporting parents, childcare and kinder staff to help children with social and academic delays, and behaviour challenges.

Stacey has worked for many years as part of a multidisciplinary early childhood intervention team supporting children with complex disabilities. She uses her knowledge and experience gained from the early childhood intervention setting and family centred practice in all of her work.

Stacey is very experienced working with children and young people who have an autism spectrum disorder, and addressing the unique challenges they face. In addition to counselling and behaviour support, she also assists families with applications for school funding.

Stacey is comfortable working within a range of environments having supported children, parents and staff in independent and public schools, both primary and secondary, in locations across Melbourne. She provides behaviour support plans for parents, schools, preschools and childcare settings and works closely with children, parents and staff to achieve positive outcomes.

Stacey has a warm and welcoming manner and values each and every young person she meets. Her goal is to help clients and their families lead more fulfilling lives.
