Dr. Shank says...

I have worked with victims of violent crime, domestic violence, sexual assault, PTSD and related issues for most of my professional life.  I work from a strengths perspective with all clients, with treatment plans that are tailored to each client's specific needs.  I offer services for those located within the State of New Mexico and Illinois only, due to licensing and ethical requirements. I offer online video sessions for the Give an Hour program.

I have served as a NASW member and state chapter board member.  I am licensed in both the State of New Mexico and Illinois, and completed a Master of Social Work Degree in Clinical Practice as well as a Doctor of Social Work.  I am also an ordained minister and Nationally certified CISM responder through ICISF for groups, individuals, public safety personnel, and children.
