About

I am a medicare approved, Mental Health Social Worker/Therapist practicing in Bendigo and Footscray. I offer a compassionate and inclusive approach to therapy. I'll help you to feel comfortable as we sit with the complexity of your life and mental health challenges. I'll support you in your therapeutic journey to question and work through the barriers getting in the way of you feeling and living well. I'll help you feel empowered and motivated for change. Together, we'll explore your story, and develop useful strategies and insights to support your recovery and growth.
I work from an anti-oppressive, feminist & trauma informed perspective. I understand oppression & power imbalances in society impact peoples' personal lives. This may lead to; Mental Health challenges, Child & Adolescent Abuse/Trauma, Grief & Loss of Identity, Family & Relationship conflict, Family Violence, Discrimination, Social exclusion and Isolation.
Defah will provide a safe space for you to talk and explore your authentic self. She will listen with curiosity and insight: to understand your individual life story. She will provide a non-judgemental space and give you the time to build trust.
