Particular interests and hopes for connection: I have recently relocated to Oregon from Australia and am looking to connect with like-minded social workers and therapists who draw upon Narrative to inform their practice. My area of interest is mental health and I have been working in an early intervention non-clinical setting with 8-12 year olds. I completed Narrative Therapy Level One Intensive at the Dulwich Centre in 2015 and really enjoyed it; the training also greatly informed my practice. I hope to network and share ideas, stories and applications of Narrative therapy in practice. I am also keen to explore the possibility of creating or joining a peer supervision group.

I am also a singer/songwriter, and am currently developing a community project that combines my music with my consultation work. It is the culmination of these two paths in my life.
