Over thirty years of experience working in government agencies,  corporations, small businesses, schools and universities as a corporate crisis interventionist, mental health provider, trainer, and speaker. In private practice since 2003.  With over 400 deployments to corporate crisis situations, I have a great deal of knowledge and expertise about managing crisis in the workplace, from restoring calm in the midst of confusion and chaos, comforting and providing compassionate psychological first aid to those exposed to to sudden death, violence, grief and loss, and downsizing. Most recently there has been a particular emphasis on how crisis such as shootings,natural disaster, economic downturns, and other tragic events affect the workplace. Most recently, interviewed by Paul Violus, Terrorism and Legal Analyst for CBS News Online, on identifying potential shooters in the local community.
