Hi, I am a credentialed mental health nurse with almost 20 years of experience in a variety of settings and roles. I am passionate about professional development and the well being of our workforce.
I value respect and collaboration, and strongly believe that clinical supervision is essential to all mental health workers.
In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my loved ones, going for walks and listening to music.
During my supervision sessions, l use a reflective model and draw on previous experiences for future learning.
I have experience in leadership roles- I am currently a team leader and have been in management positions in the past. In these roles I provide both managerial and clinical supervision.
Education- I have experience as a clinical nurse educator and clinical nurse consultant- part of my role was to provide clinical supervision to graduates and postgraduates individually and in groups.
Community mental health- I have worked as a senior clinician in a case management role and experience in inpatient settings- adult and youth.
Primary care- I provide clinical services via Care in mind as a credentialed mental health nurse.
My current role/work
My current role is a team leader at Mercy Mental Health, and also work under the Care in mind program under NWPHN.
I am a credentialed mental health nurse and have experience in assisting with credentialing process.
My previous work experience has also provided me with a great understanding of different settings and roles within mental health.
I have completed a Master of advanced nursing practice (mental health), and other training such as DBT training, a counselling diploma, certificate in coaching and am currently completing a diploma in management and leadership.
I have previously completed training in clinical supervision and AOD interventions.
My approach to supervision
I take on a reflective and solution focused approach. I believe we can reflect on past events and use this to build new skills and awareness that impacts on our practice and future learning.
I strongly value respect, confidentiality, trust and collaboration in supervisions sessions.
I truly enjoy working with others in helping them build awareness of their strengths, and am motivated by seeing positive outcomes of our sessions.
