ABOUT ME

TREATMENT

For a long time I have been drawn to supporting people with the difficulties and challenges that life can bring. Whether it's helping someone to get back on their feet after an unexpected setback or working together on lifelong patterns. Through my work I have come to strongly believe that the origins of problematic patterns and challenging relationships stem from unmet core emotional needs in childhood. Read more in Experience.
