Lama works with some of the most vulnerable children and young people through her practice as social worker across a multitude of areas. She provides counselling for rape and sexual assault survivors at Yarrow Place and works privately with people of all ages in supporting their pathway and growth beyond trauma.

Her therapeutic practice is steeped in neuro-based, body-inclusive approaches that facilitate recovery from trauma. Lama also works in Higher Education programs to build the knowledge and competence of the next generation of trauma informed Social Workers.

Lama believes that a combination of innovative therapeutic approaches and genuine trauma-informed systems, that understand the intricate nature of trauma, are necessary to effectively address trauma within our communities, promoting restorative outcomes, and preventing further re-traumatisation.

Lama knows the importance of delivering trauma-informed-care to people in their time of crisis. When the initial systemic response is trauma-informed across sectors such as healthcare, education, social services, and criminal justice, this promotes better outcomes for recovery and restoration for the individual.

Lama holds a Masters in Social Work from Flinders University. She remains committed to ongoing learning and growth in her journey to support those affected by all forms of trauma.
