Treatment and rehabilitation have evolved over the years. I will be happy to be a part of its continuous changes.

This will be an excellent opportunity to put these skills and experience in a more challenging atmosphere.

I have worked with both acute and chronically mentally ill adults and adolescents in an inpatient setting from 2006 to 2010 and then from 2012 to present.
As a clinical administrator, it was my responsibility to provide some guidance and direction to a treatment team comprised of various disciplines.
