Director of Adjunct Therapy

There are many different options for therapeutic fields of practice, and for Corey, there are none as rewarding as inpatient psychiatric care, specifically at Northbrook. This is because Northbrook is different in its prioritization of therapeutic services as a central feature of treatment for inpatients.
