As an accredited mental health social worker, I like to create a space that is safe yet gently explorative for a person and I to work together on whatever is concerning for them at the time, to hopefully find a balance between acceptance and change and build a life that's worth living. I do this with respect to the person and their experiences in a non-judgmental yet curious stance and recognise that people are doing the best they can in the systems that are around them.
I have experience in working within public mental health services and community organisations, supporting and working intensively with people who experience mental health in many different facets. I have also worked in disaster recovery support after the 2011 and 2013 floods in SE Queensland in helping to re-build not only the individual lives but also the communities that were ravaged. My last workplace was in a community organisation in a leadership role that was part of a wonderful team of humans who created and implemented a comprehensive DBT program, the first of its’ kind in a community service in Queensland, something I am very proud to have been a part of.
Why I love working at The Glow Centre
I love working at The Glow Centre because the people (team and clients alike) here are just wonderful, warm and amazing human beings that I get such a glow working with. My values are very much akin to the centre’s values as well so doing the work I do is not just a job but a passion that continues to drive me to challenge myself.
Outside the practice
When not working, I love to spend time with my partner, my dogs (even the tumbleweeds of husky-fur that comes along with them), listening to all types of music and being an unashamed gaming, comic book and other books nerd!
