In my role as Senior Art Therapist I have created and developed Connected Self’s Art Therapy Services. This incorporates; the delivery of Art Therapy in schools across Adelaide, private and funded one on one Art Therapy consultations on site at Connected Self premises as well as providing Art Therapy to NDIS, DCP, and DECD clients. I also deliver Art Therapy programs for young people, and tailor specially designed programs to meet the need of the agency or target group at hand. I have experience working with children, young people and adults. I have worked in a variety of contexts using Art Therapy including but not limited to: New arrival and refugee communities, indigenous groups, individuals living with mental illness,  individuals living with ASD and young people living with high and complex needs. My extensive art therapy experience has also led me to train and tutor up coming art therapists at the IKON Institute of Australia (RTO).
