About Sarah

“With the right Occupational Therapy, you can enjoy life, whatever the challenges”

I graduated as an Occupational Therapist in 1998 from Latrobe University, Melbourne and am passionate about providing client-focused Occupational Therapy.  

My holistic approach to my work ensures that my client’s physical and psychological issues are explored. My professional interests include functional rehabilitation in community settings and non-binary gender identities. 

While continuing to provide a rehabilitation service to my clients in Dublin, I am currently undertaking a Masters in Sexuality Studies at DCU. I will be researching ways to educate parents in sex education strategies for children of all abilities.

Originally from Melbourne Australia, I now reside in Dublin where I live with my young family.
