I was born in the state of Ohio and have lived 67% of my life there, literally within the same square mile. Other places I’ve lived include remote Northern Ontario, Pennsylvania, New York, Thailand, China, and Taiwan. I enjoy learning about and understanding cultures, and I’m passionate about helping people improve their life by improving their mental health. Previously I have worked with children and adults both in community mental health and in private practice. This included intensive outpatient for recovering addicts, equine therapy, in-home and in-school therapy, and group and individual counseling for residential and outpatient clients. It is a privilege to be joining the team at CDIS.
