When did you join RMHC? December 2020
Why do you work at RMHC? I wanted to work at RMHC because of the available wraparound services. I continue to work at Range because of my passionate, caring co-workers working directly with me and with patients participating in ARMHS, case management, therapy, peer support, Wellstone, RTC and the ADAPT programs.
What should clients know about you? In addition to medication management, I incorporate education and resources for how trauma affects the body, symptom management, behavioral modifications, therapy options, healthy eating, physical activity, and connections to financial and community resources and emotional support. I believe in limited and cautious use of controlled medications for management of certain psychiatric diagnoses.
