I have worked with children, adults, and geriatric clients in both rural and urban areas. My clinical experience includes work in mental health, psychiatric, medical, and educational settings. My career has included teaching Introduction to Psychology, Developmental Psychology, and Abnormal Psychology at the undergraduate University level, as well as teaching Psychotherapy, Assessment and Diagnosis, Sexual Dysfunctions and Treatment, and a Group Psychotherapy Practicum at the Graduate School level. Several distinct vocational roles have placed me in both the community agency and private sector arenas.
Common issues I encounter involve: anxiety, depression, grief, guilt, embarrassment, shame,anger, relationship difficulties, problems with communicating, work stress, life transitions, loss, psychophysiological disorders, and post-traumatic stress (including those with physical and sexual abuse in their histories).
