I enjoy working with seniors because they are one of the most under served populations in terms of mental health; yet, one of the most appreciative of having received services.
I worked acute inpatient psychiatric for about 6 years before transitioning to more of an outpatient setting. I spent several years working with active duty service members and their dependents. I’ve also worked for an insurance company part of the Medicaid contract in VA. In my last position, I was the Tidewater Regional Director for an agency that provided therapeutic day treatment in the public school system. I have been providing outpatient services since 2020 and work with individuals ages 25 and up with a special focus on active duty service members and seniors.
I use a person-centered approach and allow the client to guide where the session goes. I like to think that my job is to help the client navigate through the ups and downs of life.
