In the past eight years, she has been working as a consultant supervisor, educator/trainer, and clinical specialist in the Aboriginal Community Controlled Health Organisation sector and is in private practice.
Gina is a member of the PACFA College of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Healing Practices (CATSIHP) and the PACFA research committee. She has completed studies in working with trauma, Indigenous models of care, and ecotherapy. She has a deep understanding of the importance of connection, both with others and with the natural world. She believes that much of human suffering comes from feeling scared, isolated, and disconnected, and that healing can come through re-connecting and healing our relationship with each other and with the earth.
Gina incorporates her Indigenous healing practices and psychotherapy in reciprocity with nature, offering gentle care and support to help people walk back home together. She is committed to supporting people in finding connection and healing, and in developing a deeper connection with the natural world.
