“Quote or Hero text” – Elissa Klaassen

Elissa returned to her roots in rural Western Australia in 2016 after completing Master’s and PhD level study in the field of Neuropsychology in The Netherlands, followed by training and endorsement as a Clinical Psychologist in Australia. Elissa is passionate about providing much needed specialist services to rural areas and is currently pursuing further study with a Graduate Diploma in Clinical Neuropsychology at the University of Western Australia. She consults in Manjimup and is also currently engaged at ADHD WA as part of her further training in Clinical Neuropsychology.

Elissa works with a broad range of mood and anxiety-related issues with a focus on adolescents and adults. Her background in neuropsychology means she is well-placed to provide psychological intervention to individuals with co-morbid neurological or neuropsychological issues. She also draws from her background in neuropsychology to provide comprehensive assessments for children with learning and/or developmental issues (i.e. through Educational Assessments). Elissa completed her PhD on the subject of cognitive ageing and enjoys working with older adults to explore the role of psychology in supporting a healthy ageing process.

Elissa is a registered Medicare provider (eligible for Clinical Psychology rebates) and is also eligible for rebates under most private health care funds.
