Ross has worked with clients on trauma related issues for over 25 years in a variety of settings, including private practice, schools, youth wilderness programs, and as a drug alcohol and sexual abuse counselor at a halfway house for Native men coming out of prison.
Ross's work with people is deeply influenced by his own healing and life experiences. He brings compassion and sensitivity, as well as a deep understanding that comes from having experienced many of the challenges that he helps clients work through and overcome.
In 2012 Ross recognized that there was a lack of effective help for those at risk of suicide and began to work more in this area.
