Mō tō mātou rōpū – About our team
The Pasifika team is special place to work. The last psychologist who worked for the team left because of family reasons and was sad to be leaving such a close knit team. If you want to explore how your psychology skills can align with Pasifika treatment modalities, you will not find a more supportive team for this learning. The breadth of experience you will get and opportunities to grow is second to none.
