Nicole is an AASW accredited social worker who has joined Polaris Lawyers after extensive practice across the mental health, family violence and homelessness sectors. Nicole has also previously volunteered as a patient advocate for women diagnosed with gynaecological cancers.
She practices under a trauma-informed, strengths-based and anti-oppressive approach, and is in the process of becoming an accredited social work supervision provider with the AASW.
One of Nicole’s biggest motivators in this work is to help clients find their voice and rebuild their confidence after experiencing traumatic events. She is aware of the emotional toll legal proceedings can have on clients, and is passionate about creating a safe and inclusive space for people to explore their emotions and support needs without judgement.
Nicole is proud to become part of the Polaris team and contribute to the great work being achieved by their legal staff to provide empathetic and flexible support for clients. Outside of work, you can find Nicole going for long walks in nature, baking bread and sipping cups of tea with her cat, Lenny!
