For the majority of her career, she worked on a containment team alongside the California Department of Corrections and the United States Federal Probation Department, evaluating and monitoring sexual offenders. She has presented research nationally and internationally on the topic of sexual offense prevention. She has extensive training and experience in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, which allows the client to be involved in examining thought patterns as related to behaviors and further developing individualized interventions.
