Ed has a distinguished medical career that started in the early 80s starting with EMS, as an educator and nurse. As a nurse, my clinical experience was psychiatry, emergency medicine, and trauma.
My psychiatry experience includes inpatient and outpatient care, PHP, and IOP treatment programs. My patients have been across the age spectrum, but I specialized in adolescents (14+) and young adults.
I have lived and professional experience working with the unique psychiatric needs of the LGBTQ+ community and civil servants (fire, EMS, and law enforcement).
My clinical experience in school includes more than 750 hours, in the following areas:
- Pediatric and adolescent medication management
- Adult medication management
- Individual and group therapy
- LGBTQ+ affirming care
- Functional medicine in psychiatry
- Trauma-informed care
Completed Clinical Rotations
Over the past year, I have completed more than 750 clinical hours (150% of the ANCC certification criteria).
I've worked with diverse patients including geriatric, pediatric. ASD, LGBTQ+. I have seen acute and chronic patients, from all socioeconomic settings.
I am confident that my professional experience with trauma care, gender identity, sexual identity, neurodivergence, and co-occurring diagnoses will be valuable to my future.
I have worked with diverse groups such as low-income, uniformed personnel (emergency responders), the LGBTQIA+ community, and the BIPOC community. I hope to join a practice that aligns with my clinical background, that affirms the LGBTQIA+ community, and provides exceptional outpatient psychiatric care.
