I have a doctorate in psychology and 15+ year career in the mental health field. I completed my residency in the area of serious mental illness and the bulk of my work has been with individuals who have schizophrenia or other psychotic illnesses.
I left the field about 5 years ago and begun painting full-time in an effort to manage my own personal experience of post traumatic stress disorder, and heal from the circumstances that preceded it.
My work is directly interwoven to this process, both experiential lay as well as a finished product.
