Cathy sees both Deaf and hard-of-hearing clients who come to Karli Health Centre with mental health plans. She provides her services in English, working with an Auslan-English interpreter. Cathy is experienced in providing psychological support to adults and adolescents with a variety of mental health difficulties, including drug and alcohol abuse. Cathy is able to see clients who have a GP Health Care Plan.
Even though she does not know Auslan fluently, her warm and genuine personality comes through all of her communication and she has come to understand a great deal about Deaf and hard-of-hearing people through her personal relationship with Karli, with whom she has a treasured friendship.
