Firstly, I would love to introduce you to Annette, our Principal Psychologist and owner of Riv Hub. Many of you are probably familiar with her, as she has been working in Coolamon, Temora and surrounds for over 4 years. She originally decided to start Riv Hub after being disappointed by the lack of support provided outside of the major centre.

Annette has a passion for all things Neurodiverse. Having ADHD herself, as well as a mum to 2 boys with ADHD she has a unique perspective on the challenges it presents over the lifetime. She is trained in assessments for ADHD, Autism and all learning difficulties and explores both the strengths and difficulties for the client and the young person to present a well-rounded approach.

Over the last few years, she has also up skilled in specific therapies around supporting parents and children with behavioural difficulties, eating disorders and general mental health.
