Hey there, my name is Julie and I am 50 y.o. social worker who has worked many years with our most vulnerable in society i.e. men, women and children alike, in order to restore some balance, hope, and to provide healing for these once 'silenced victims' who have been, and still are subjected to violence and abuse throughout their lives.
I have had the privilege to work with not only men in therapeutic counselling settings, but have also worked with women and children who have been exposed to ‘family and domestic violence’, and who have experienced the damaging effects of drug and alcohol abuse while living in extremely controlled and unhealthy environments.
Over the past two years, my role has really challenged me both personally and professionally. It has allowed me to put 'all' my knowledge, wisdom and skills into practice, when I was asked to work in a Group Home funded by the Department of Child Protection. A ‘Tier one’ therapeutic group home for youth with challenging and anti-social behaviors. These behaviors, the bi-product of complex trauma, taunting these children who have had to live their lives constantly in fear, with parents/carers unable to adequately protect and care for them throughout their crucial developing years.
The Silent Tour 'Peace Dove'. Our symbolic 'blue teared dove' representing healing and hope.
