Senior Social Worker
Jo is a Senior Social Worker with a genuine interest in working with older adults. She has experience as an ACAT Assessor and in community aged care, with a high level of knowledge navigating the aged care system and the impact of adjustment to life changes, grief, and loss.

Jo has a person-centred approach and provides a compassionate, safe space where people feel valued, heard and empowered to make choices that enhance their lives. She recognises each person as a unique individual and an expert in their own life.

Jo is informed by system and developmental theories which emphasise the unique challenges faced by individuals in later life stages within their environments. She applies techniques from goal directed and reflective therapies, with a particular interest in reminiscence and life review therapy.

Jo graduated from University of Western Australia in 2006 and is a member of the Australian Association of Social Workers. She is committed to continuing education and staying updated with the latest practices in social work to provide the best possible care.
