Other Experience:
My work draws from a variety of life experiences before becoming a psychologist including working in drug discovery research in several biotech firms and a US government lab, programming customized Microsoft Access databases at a consulting start up, Christian ministry work, and teaching high school science. I also have experience helping employees with work-related stress from issues such as discrimination, workplace bullying, retaliation for whistleblowing, and wrongful termination.  I can provide support through the work leave process and submitting paperwork to return to work as well as exploring opportunities for career transitions. I believe all of these life and professional experiences may be valuable in helping me to understand and help you.
