He also facilitated individual and group therapy with patients.
He has also worked as an adjunct professor of psychology at Franklin and Marshall, teaching courses on general psychology, trauma, and psychopathology. This experience enabled him to deepen his understanding of young adults, a population that he enjoys working with.

Being able to communicate in difficult situations has been critically important in my work, especially as someone who supervises behavioral health staff. Listening with full attention and knowing how to relay difficult information to patients, family members, and staff enables me to successfully provide support and guidance.”
