Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
My work is usually with those who suffer from long standing issues, such as complicated grief reactions, depression, anxiety, stress, PTSD and so on. I first became attracted to this field and those issues previously mentioned from my own experiences as a war/combat verteran. I also find I am very effective working with those who suffer from feelings of alienation, rejection and cultural issues. In addition, working with parenting problems is more joy than work.
