Leaves Shadow

Resources

This working list is non-exhaustive but is a working document to support clients in various areas that I find come up in therapy. Please take what you need, and leave what is not helpful or supportive for you. Check back if you need as it will be continually updated, and feel free to share with others who might benefit from these resources. 

This is not meant to be a replacement for therapy, and may not be reflective of my personal views.
