A creative, productive, and results-oriented professional, I'm eclectic both in my background and in what I bring to the table. By training, I'm a clinical social worker and a cultural geographer. Professionally, I've spent twenty-five years working in mental health and education. Not one to be constrained by a job description, I've successfully spearheaded community initiatives outside the scope of my position, either pro bono or on a contractual/consultative basis. I've founded public awareness initiatives, chaired community coalitions, and been a project leader in settings from health care and higher education to prevention efforts focused on domestic violence, sexual assault, and suicide risk.
Along with my work in systems-level change and higher education, I'm a licensed psychotherapist offering outpatient therapy since 1993. After five years working in a nonprofit setting, in 1998 I established a successful private practice which I've sustained to the present day.
Intertwined with these aspects of who I am, I'm also a writer and photographer. I've written for the Huffington Post, the Minneapolis Star Tribune, the Ann Arbor News, the Jackson Citizen Patriot, and am a guest columnist for V-Men on Eve Ensler's V-Day site as well as a guest columnist for Girls with Pen's website.
