My name is Emily McDonald and I am a Registered Social Worker based in Christchurch, New Zealand. I have 12 years of experience in the social work industry working in both governmental and NGO agencies.

Given the growing need for mental health services in the Upper South Island, Diane Gillespie and I have developed Southern Alps Psychology. Our goal is to grow and develop our company into a modern service that delivers a diverse range of resources/services to best meet the needs of our clients.
