My experience draws from work in state and community agencies where I helped individuals cope with a variety of issues including anxiety, depression, post-traumatic stress disorder, addictions, self-injurious behaviors and severe and persistent mental illnesses.
I’ve worked with people from diverse backgrounds with diverse issues including:
Child and female victims of sexual, physical or emotional abuse,
anxious teens transitioning into college or the workforce,
incarcerated older adults serving life sentences, and many, many others.
