Introduction
I'm working on spiritual health assessment and intervention, developing resources for inclusive and accessible communication, and incorporating telehealth. I continue to have a passion for supporting those with communication impairments adjusting post-traumatically. Clinically, I offer person-centred holistic speech and language therapy with adults, incorporating client-led goal setting and outcome measures.
