Personal Statement  My main foci are Multimodal Therapy and Post-traumatic Stress Disorders. Through the study of and training of others in Multimodal Therapy, I endeavor to help better match appropriate treatments for specific individuals with specific issues at specific times of their lives, using the BASIC ID paradigm.
