Former newspaper journalist and current, freelance writer specializing in health care/mental health.
I specialize in investigative stories, news-features, op-eds and profiles, as well as general-interest, online content whose subjects touch on health care and social justice/social services. I also write about about mental health (particularly alternative approaches), neurodiversity, and prejudice and discrimination toward various minority groups.
I am a contributing author to the forthcoming, 3rd edition of the university textbook, "Community Mental Health: Challenges for the 21st Century," edited by Jessica Rosenberg & Samuel Rosenberg (Routledge, Jan 2017).
Past outlets I've been published in include the San Francisco Chronicle, Stanford Magazine, Santa Cruz Sentinel, Bend Bulletin. Stanford Social Innovation Review and Sacramento Bee.
