I began working in Adult Mental Health in 1992. My practice is relationship based, integrative & humanistic. I am fully trained in the use of EMDR for a wide range of psychological difficulties including the treatment of Post Traumatic Stress. I also use EMDR for smoking cessation, addiction & chronic pain. I have worked in both an agency setting & in private practice though currently I am working solely in private practice. I have considerable experience with complex needs & with people who have difficulty engaging in therapeutic relationship. I also offer Clinical Supervision. Please contact me for more information.
