Ruffina brings with her almost twenty years’ experience; after beginning her training and career in India, Ruffina has spent more than a decade working in Australia, with her most recent work being in Western Australia and Northern Territory.
Ruffina is passionate about using culturally-appropriate evidence-based assessment along with therapeutic skills to support her clients. She practises in an authentic and respectful manner, recognising the uniqueness of each individual client and their experience/situation.
