About

An enthusiastic & creative journalist-turned-social work therapist working in the public mental health and addiction fields. The crux of my clinical approach lies in non-judgmental & meaningful rapport-building, and identifying how one's values & core beliefs influence their decisions. I recognise the value in identifying all domains of the client's life that impact their wellbeing - health, support network, environment, and childhood. I believe that the most significant changes occur when individuals are given the space & support they need to develop their strengths, and realize their capacity to live fulfilling lives.
I am experienced in areas such as mental health & addiction case management, community work, and primary education, and possess cross-cultural competencies including working with people seeking asylum, interpreters, and others from Culturally & Linguistically Diverse backgrounds. I am also fluent in Hindi, and offer both Telehealth & face to face sessions.
I am exceptionally passionate about working with individuals from socially marginalised groups through inclusive, non-judgmental, and culturally sensitive practice. I help clients identify their inner strengths and develop their resilience skills, and support them on their trajectories – whether they be journeys to recovery, or developing their identity.
