Areas Of Interest
Autism: Because I have a 13-year-old son on the autism spectrum, I have become very educated regarding all intellectual disabilities and learn a great deal from raising him. I am very passionate about addressing the struggles both the person with autism and their family deal with on a daily basis.
Emotional Intensity Disorders: Emotional Intensity Disorders are also of great interest, and I have been involved in a cognitive behavioral therapy program called STEPPS. STEPPS was developed to help those with EIC, and I have seen how much the program has done for those with the diagnosis and others. I have always said everyone on the planet could benefit from STEPPS. Since I have mental illness in my family, I have learned both the family's and the provider's perspective on schizophrenia, autism and the bipolar disorders.
