My experience has been developed over years working in a variety of settings. I began my time working with adults in residential treatment centers, inpatient hospitals, and outpatient treatment centers. The individuals that I worked with suffered from a variety of mental health concerns such as:

  • Self-harming behaviors
  • Eating disorders
  • Depressive disorders
  • Bipolar disorders
  • Anger
  • Interpersonal and relationship struggles
  • Gaining Independence
  • Domestic Violence
  • Trauma

 

In addition, I spent a lot of years working with children and adolescents in residential treatment centers and inpatient hospitalizations. These youth dealt with a variety of mental health issues such as:

 

  • Severe abuse and neglect
