I have been involved in the world of Ethical Non-Monogamy for over a decade. I have done lots of reading, listening and know a large number of people involved in various flavors of ENM.
I specialize in the following areas: Anger management, relationship issues, Anxiety management, Depression, Complex PTSD, Consensual Non-monogamy, Attachment theory. I am client-centered, well versed in both clinician driven techniques like EMDR for PTSD, but also very good with both psycho-educational techniques for things like Anger management. CBT is a core technique used to address problematic thinking and to help clients develop alternative coping strategies.
When I'm not at work I'm making things with metal, practicing sword fighting and mastering a whole host of skills last used hundreds of years ago.
