Lived Experience

I worked in a correctional facility for a number of years as a therapist and
simultaneously spent a number of years as an emergency respond team member. In this role, I 
responded to large scale incidences including hostage situations and barricaded individuals. I know firsthand the impact that a high stress career can have on the individual, as well as their loved ones. Working within systems you have little control over, high exposure to traumatic incidences, and frequent change can distort how you see the world around you and how you engage with others. I have made it my mission to help individuals in high stress careers respond effectively to their emotional experiences, support their wellbeing, and improve their relationships with others.
