I have been a Therapist and Crisis Responder for over 18 years. I have experience in International Crisis, EMS and Photojournalism. I am using this space to facilitate my own recovery from morale injury, vicarious trauma and burnout. I have helped thousands move on to have successful careers, families and achieve personal inner growth away from devastatingly dark places.

I am now taking a sabbatical to focus on myself in order to nourish my spirit through creativity.
