Combining western clinical qualifications and Indigenous healing practices, Bianca empowers a diversity of women worldwide, to embrace healing on their own terms, outside of four walls. Her certified Indigenous social enterprise, Warida Wholistic Wellness, takes its vision from Warida (wedge-tailed eagle in Badimaya / Badimia), delivering quality training in wellbeing, healing and systems change. As a PACFA Mental Health Practitioner, and co-convenor of the Psychotherapy and Counselling Federation of Australia's College of Aboriginal Torres Strait Islander Healing Practices, Bianca's qualifications include a Masters in Counselling Practice, Diploma of Life Coaching, Post grad. Diploma of Counselling, Certificate in Equine Assisted Psychotherapy, and Bachelor of Aboriginal studies.

Bianca is honoured to live on Kaurna Country in South Australia and treasures time reconnecting to Badimia Country with her family. As part of her life's work, Bianca is currently undertaking a PhD with Batchelor Institute exploring Ngardi Guwanda (deep listening), Indigenous Healing and lived experiences of First Nations Plural Communities (people with a diagnosis of dissociative identity disorder). Bianca hopes these explorations can continue to create awareness, instigate change, and provide a platform for some of our world's most disadvantaged and vulnerable people to have their voices heard.
