I have been self employed in private practice since 2002. I have worked as lead therapist in many psychiatric hospital in the Atlanta and the surrounding counties. Prior to forming my private practice I taught Art Therapy 2 years in high school and taught the next 12 years at the elementary school level. My last position was as a third grade teacher in the gwinnett county school system.
