SENSITIVITY READING

I am open for sensitivity reading for all formats of fiction on the following subjects:

  • Mental Health

  • Mental Illness

  • Service Dogs*

I also can provide critique on the piece submitted for an additional fee (to be discussed privately over email).

CREDENTIALS

I have a Masters in Clinical Social Work from The Ohio State University and almost a decade in the field of social work doing therapy and medical social work. I am also mentally ill myself, with four diagnoses, and have been living and working with these diagnoses for over 20 years. I have a Service Dog (pictured to the side) that I trained with the help of a service dog organization. We have been working together for two and a half years.

I ran critique groups in Columbus, Ohio for over four years, and saw many pieces (and a book) go to publication from these groups.
