Clinical Experience


Over the past four years, I’ve had the opportunity to help others in individual outpatient, a PTSD specialty clinic, and a partial hospitalization program, affording me experience with diverse populations, disorders, and clinical settings. I have also been blessed to meet and connect with people across countries, cultures, socioeconomic divides, occupations, and belief systems, and have been rewarded with deep appreciation and empathy for the diverse expressions of God’s image-bearers.
