About Jennifer

Jennifer is a warm and compassionate clinician with over 19 years’ experience as a Social Worker providing counselling and support to people on a wide range of issues including anxiety, depression, perinatal mental health, parenting, the impact of trauma, violence, abuse, and neglect. She is aware of how daunting it can be to seek counselling support and is committed to providing a safe and supportive environment.

Jennifer works from a strengths-based, trauma-informed approach. Her practice is informed by a range of therapeutic modalities including attachment theory, mindfulness practices, dyadic developmental psychotherapy, cognitive behavioural therapy, and solution focused therapy. Jennifer collaborates with her clients to understand each individual’s situation, acknowledging each person’s cultural background, beliefs, and support networks.

Jennifer is a Wiradjuri woman and has experience working in a trauma informed and cultural responsive manner. She weaves Aboriginal worldviews in her work with First Nations people.

Jennifer enjoys providing consultation, clinical supervision and cultural supervision to workers and teams from a range of fields including child protection, domestic violence, child and adolescent mental health and disability.
