About Ryan - Psychologist

Ryan Montoya-Val is a registered psychologist currently practicing from a small town called Lara in rural Victoria. He has a Masters degree in Clinical Psychology from Swinburne University. With nine years experience as a psychologist, he’s worked in a variety of clinical and community settings including: mental health hospitals, psychology clinics, schools, and crisis hotlines.

When he’s not working, Ryan is very keen on music, playing a variety of instruments and loves creating sounds just for the fun of it. He has also done some research on the effects music can have on people’s moods. (In a nutshell, good music = good moods!)

Secretly he has a passion for comics and superheroes. These help him to indulge his inner child, and have a healthy escape from reality once in awhile. For his Masters thesis, Ryan developed a positive mental health program for young children using stories, ideas and characters from popular superhero comics and movies.
