Kirrilee is a passionate social work practitioner providing evidence-based therapeutic interventions that are underpinned by core values of dignity, empathy, respect, and aims to create a safe and empowering environment for individuals to work collaboratively.
Her practice framework incorporates various treatment modalities and theoretical understandings to support mothers in treatment.

Kirrilee understands by providing therapeutic interventions that are tailored to women and their families this can support sustainable and positive treatment outcomes. Lived experiences shape people’s perspectives and view of the world and becoming a mother and parent can be both challenging and extremely rewarding, which is why it is crucial that both mum and family members needing extra support feel comfortable to do so.
