I am a qualified social worker with 25 years of experience working in child/youth and family services as well as disability and aged care. I provide therapeutic support services in the Eastern and South-eastern suburbs of Melbourne. I work with individuals and groups of all ages and abilities, utilising gardening and outdoor nature-based activities to engage participants and promote their physical, mental, social, and emotional well-being. My therapeutic intervention is person centred, strengths based, and solution focused and applies a strong systems approach, including an emphasis on the participant’s care team in order to develop and strengthen formal and informal supports. I also undertake public speaking engagements as an educator of therapeutic horticulture and for the advancement of this practice in Australia.
