Counselor/Therapist, Ed.D., M.A., BCBA-D, CAC, BC-TMH, CCTP, THP, Practitioner/ Specialist.
From the time I was a small child, I was no stranger to being around people living in chronic pain and illness. I became very accustomed to caring for and assisting others experiencing physical pain. My maternal grandmother was diagnosed with cancer just before I was born. I went on to work in health care settings, including nursing and rehabilitative homes and centers, and continued to provide services to an aging population. I also have personal experience caring for a deceased spouse who suffered with cancer. This personal experience was far more educational than any advanced degree or training program with which I participated, in terms of understanding so many important factors involved in the treatment and care of those living with chronic pain or illness, as well as their families. Since that time (2008), I have worked with a number of clients individually, and their families, diagnosed with cancer and other terminal illnesses. Coupled with my early-on personal and professional learning experiences, this is a specialty area of mine that comes very naturally. Psychological pain and "disease" is also an area for which I am no stranger, in terms of experiencing the effects of secondary traumatization (vicarious traumatization). Often times those individuals who are not receiving the help and support they need may pass these conditions onto others, just like with physical communicable "dis-eases", causing others to experience these "states". It is so important that those surrounding these individuals are also provided the help, care, and support that is needed so it is not displaced onto others, who may fall victim to their outbursts or difficulties.
