“Give a man a fish, and you feed him for a day; teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime.”
This quote inspired me to become an occupational therapist. Occupation refers to all the everyday things we do, including activities of daily living, work, study, play and so forth. Everyone may encounter challenges in their lifetime, my role as an occupational therapist is to work together with clients and families through their journey. Our goal is to help you or your loved one to develop skills and strategies that they can utilise in various environments to manage their difficulties and maximise their independence to participate in their life.
I enjoy working in a collaborative approach with parents, siblings and teachers and others to ensure a holistic view is taken into consideration for the intervention plan. As everyone has unique characteristics and strengths, I believe that building on these strengths and creating a fun environment is empowering and engaging to promote the achievement of goals.
I graduated with a Masters degree in Occupational Therapy from Curtin University in 2019. I have been working for the past few years with individuals across the lifespan with disabilities in community settings. I also worked in paediatrics, providing services to school-aged children with varying learning difficulties and disabilities.
In my downtime, I enjoy spending time with my wife exploring new food places around Perth, going to the beach and going for bushwalks.
If you feel that I can be of assistance to you or your family, please contact me at the practice on 6381 0071.
