I’m a Licensed Clinical Social Worker, an advertising/marketing professional, and now a blogger. I created The Calm, Cool & Collected. After working to support those struggling with addiction for 10+ years, I turned a corner about cannabis use after I lost my father to opioid addiction. Once I started reading more about how cannabis can prevent other’s addictions, I knew I needed to know more and more. 

Over the past few years, I’ve found that mental health is very much a part of the cannabis conversation. PTSD, anxiety, addiction, depression- it’s seemed to me that everyone’s talking about mental health. However most of the education was in effort to sell products or services. The Calm, Cool & Collected was founded in effort to offer unbiased educational information about cannabis and mental health.

Seeing as the cannabis industry is rapidly growing, I’ve found it hard to stay on top of all the developments alone. I’ve asked for the help of other highly qualified mental health professionals to best provide you all the information about cannabis and mental health you need. 

Here’s the team…
