I have worked with hundreds of organizations over more than 35 years of professional practice. Below is an alphabetized list of selected examples. In general, I specialize in the interwoven themes of mental health, trauma, and addictions — which are not three distinct things but rather, in most circumstances, different manifestations of one thing: trauma. Many people now recognize that trauma is a common feature of the human experience, exists throughout our communities, and requires focused attention. In particular, organizations and communities where trauma can be pervasive — first responders, First Nations, refugees, survivors of abuse and war, under-housed populations, communities facing systemic racism or prejudice — these contexts require specialized support and training. And, because every context is different, communities require an approach that is sensitive to their unique challenges and needs.
