I am a Licensed Professional Counselor and have experience with mental health issues such as Depression, Anxiety, Reactive Attachment Disorder, and drug and alcohol addiction. I have over 8 years experience working as a counselor. Also, I specialize in family dynamics with an emphasis on teen advice, and drug and alcohol abuse. And I specialize in helping others find purpose and success in retirement: often addiction is common in retirement since after working they experience a deep sense of disconnection from others, and their community. I can write short articles for mental health magazines, and blogs as well. I enjoy the process of counseling using the media of writing since many have limited time to engage in talk therapy.
