NDIS Social Work | Support Coordination | Specialist Support Coordination

Infant Sleep Support | Perinatal Therapy

Hi, I'm Julia

I am a Perth based mum offering support to families in the perinatal period and beyond.

As a Masters qualified Accredited Social Worker, I work in many capacities to provide support, including NDIS Social Work, Support Coordination, Specialist Support Coordination, Infant Sleep Support and Perinatal Therapy.

I believe every family deserves an enjoyable and fulfilling pregnancy, postpartum period and family life, regardless of the challenges they may be facing.


I want you to feel heard, validated and supported. You were not meant to do it alone. 


Why work with me

Being a mum is beautiful and fulfilling... but can also bring with it stress and exhaustion.


We know that a lack of practical, social and emotional support can leave families vulnerable to experiencing burnout, overwhelm and exhaustion. It does not have to be this way! Planning, information and ongoing support for mental health, parenting and infant sleep can make a huge difference.

Whilst I specialise in supporting with the transition to mum-life, I recognise the important role social work plays as your children grow, particularly for families navigating a disability and the NDIS. This is why I work with families right through to adolescence and young adults.

Being a social worker means I have the formal training, qualifications and experience in parenting, family, perinatal and infant support, mental health and wellbeing, to support your parenting journey.

Woman Centred Care

With you at the centre of my practice I will affirm you, validate you and encourage you to tap into your knowledge and wisdom.


I will normalise your experience of being a mum – the good days and the challenging ones.


You are the expert in your family, and I will remind you of your strengths and how lucky your child is to call you mum.

Lived Experience

I had a challenging start to becoming a mum.


A traumatic birth, a baby with a heart defect requiring open heart surgery and a NICU stay.


I struggled with my mental health and wellbeing during this period.


I’m also a single mum. All of this happened during the first year of my daughter’s life.


I have lived experience in the challenges that mums face.


This has given me insight into how difficult this period can be and what support should look like.
