I had worked full time with the PTSD program at the VA, in the Community Outreach program with homeless and chronically mentally ill veterans, and with primarily depression and anxiety in my private practice until a couple of years ago, when my own health issues required me to seek a part time endeavor. I have experience treating patients using individual and group therapy and medication management.
I now volunteer part-time with a non-profit clinic, and I look forward to serving the health tap community.
I relocated to TN in 1999 from Ohio to work with the VA and ETSU as adjunct faculty. I reside with my two rescue dogs, enjoy our beautiful property and the state of Tennessee, reading, writing academic articles, sketching and painting, and public speaking to educate others on various scientific and medical topics, including raising public awareness of mental illness and addictive disease.
