Hello

This year I celebrate 25 years since I began my paediatric Occupational Therapy career! Please take a look at my details below to see whether my skills match your needs:

About

Supervision:

I am an experienced clinical supervisor with a background working in multi-disciplinary organisations, private practice and as an external supervisor for therapists across Australia. I believe strongly in providing quality, evidence-based supervision and have completed supervision-specific training and participate in ongoing mentoring. I also convene an Australian online peer support group for Occupational Therapy Supervisors.

Business and Management:

I have built and run my group private practice located in rural NSW over the past 8 years. Prior to that I was the supervising Occupational Therapist for a not-for- profit organisation located in NSW. I understand the link between quality Occupational Therapy service provision and sustainable business.

Clinical background:

My clinical experience is broad, having worked in various organisations including community health, not for profits and private practice. I am endorsed to provide services under Medicare Better Access to Mental Health Care Scheme. 

I have experience working with a range of diagnostic populations including physical disability, specific learning disorders, early childhood early intervention, vision impairment, developmental co-ordination disorder, and neuro-developmental disorders.

Currently, my particular interests focus on working with children and teens who identify as being neuro divergent, who may have labels such as Autism Spectrum Disorder, ADHD, sensory processing differences, executive functioning disorders, motor planning disorders, regulatory challenges or developmental delays. I also enjoy Family-Centred Practice, use of collaboration and coaching within Occupational Therapy, strengths-based approaches and implementation of the DIR Floor time (R) approach.

   

Should your supervision needs revolve around topics which I consider out of my scope such as complex equipment/ assistive technology, home modifications or upper limb management I will refer you to one of my colleagues.
