I worked in child welfare for 2 years, then with adults experiencing mental illness for 4. In all, I have about 9 years of varied experience in my field. I regularly attend training to maintain my skills and have worked with folks who come from various diverse circumstances. Studying various forms of oppression and it's impact on our society and those living in it is a passion of mine.
I utilize both short term intervention styles such as Solution Focused Brief Therapy which will help you identify immediate areas of opportunity in your life. I also utilize cognitive behavioral therapies skills which can help you identify ways negative thinking is impacting your life and how to change those thoughts when they come up.
