Natalie Kavaney, Bachelor of Applied Social Sciences Social Work

I am a self-employed Registered Social Worker, a member of ANZASW, and an ACC Sensitive Claims Provider of Social Work services in the Nelson Tasman region. I live in sunny Richmond with my husband, two young adult children and our much-loved dogs.

Assisting people to thrive within their community is my passion. It is a privilege to walk alongside my clients, utilizing their strengths, and supporting them to reach their desired goals. When collaborating with clients, I understand the importance of ensuring the appropriate community supports are in place, removing any barriers, so a person is then able to focus on healing from past traumas. I believe in unconditional positive regard, empathy and doing with, rather than doing for.

I have worked in range of settings which have included SASH, Family Start, Nelson Hospital and Addiction Services. All referrals are welcome.
