Rocco is a registered psychologist with experience and training working with adults, adolescents and children. He is very passionate about LGBTQIA+ mental health, men’s, and adolescent mental health. Rocco has a particular interest in treating and assisting with the psychological and socio-cultural issues of gay men, gay male couples, and LGBTQIA+ adolescents. 


Rocco’s areas of focus include: complex (childhood) trauma (C-PTSD), addiction and recovery, eating disorders, gender affirmation, interpersonal relationships, life and relationship transitions, sex and intimacy, grief and loss, depression, anxiety, and issues with assertiveness and setting boundaries. 

Rocco focuses on patterns and narratives that are often developed in childhood and adolescence, and repeated throughout our lives — playing out in our relationships, society, culture, and within our own minds and bodies. 


Rocco is a therapist who sees the importance of focusing on the therapeutic relationship with each person; to collaborate with people in a safe, accepting, and empathic space, to help them better understand their self-worth. He believes strongly in taking an individualised and holistic approach in helping people develop their relationship with themselves, connect with their needs and values, and engage with a meaningful life.
