Bio

Professionally, I have 30 years plus in vocational rehabilitation and mental health counseling. I've worked with injured workers, targeted population groups, ex-offenders, inmates, homeless, refugees, hard-to-serve populations, comorbid clients, and individuals with cognitive, behavioral, and physical disabilities. I've also worked with different age groups from at-risk youth to senior programs. I've contracted as a Social Security Vocational Expert since 2016. I have a private practice and do a lot of consulting and pro-bono work with specific population groups.
