Rebecca is an experienced occupational therapist (OT) with a subspecialty in adult mental health. She completed her OT degree in 2012 at the University of Newcastle and spent five years rotating through various speciality medical wards at a busy metropolitan hospital in Sydney. Following this, Rebecca discovered her passion in mental health and went on to pursue a career in the mental health setting. She has worked on an adult mental health unit in Sydney for the last three years – treating clients individually and in group settings.
Rebecca works with clients experiencing a range of mental health challenges, such as mood and anxiety disorders, and psychosis/schizophrenia. She practises in a trauma-informed, strengths-based manner which respects and empowers clients on their recovery journeys. Rebecca assists clients to function and to re-engage in activities that can support their overall mental health and well-being.
She spends her free-time juggling a busy social calendar, squeezing in time to exercise, and getting outdoors with her husband and young son.
