Clinical Psychology Seattle

Experience: Program administration

I have had the good fortune to be an administrator of two community-based mental health programs. I have enjoyed the challenges and satisfactions of creating and managing high quality programs with well-trained clinical staff. It is quite rewarding to help bring top quality mental health care to members of underserved groups who might not otherwise receive it.
