About

I'm curious about the unconscious mind and look forward to exploring with you the impact of your past experiences on your present day life. I spent the first part of my career as a therapist in community mental health. I have significant experience working with complex PTSD, anxiety, depression, bipolar and ENM/poly relationships.
My approach to clients is rooted in harm reduction, and trauma informed care. I utilize a relational approach , meaning I value the therapeutic relationship as the most important for success of therapy.
