I am a former therapist who has worked with children, adolescents, and teenagers in individual and group therapy settings. I began my mental health career employed with a psychiatric hospital before I left to counsel children and their families in a nonprofit community-based program. I then became the on-site Director of an Independent Living Program which assisted teenagers and young adults transitioning into independence. Along with counseling, we provided training for healthy coping skills and life skills. As someone who has struggled with shyness and feeling awkward in social situations since childhood, I can relate to others who find social situations stressful or attempt to avoid approaching new people or situations. I also understand the importance of a sense of community and connecting with peers who can empathize with your struggles.
