Work Experience:  Working in many settings providing social work services has given me a wealth of experience.  From working in an out patient mental health facility that primarily provided creative arts therapies to people with chronic mental illness, A Family Health Center,  two large community hospitals providing mental health services and the non-profit sector providing supportive counseling to the families who have lost loved ones from terminal illness.  
    In my experience, people find comfort in the process of therapy while exploring the opportunity to make changes in your life.
