Sidenotes and Footnotes

Important information

Privacy: Because many of the topics that I address can be sensitive, I may change identifying information (names, locations, dates, etc.) in order to protect the privacy of those I write about. I do everything I can to maintain the strength and truth of my writing while holding to the integrity of my profession.

Triggers: Once again, many of the topics that I address can raise troubling and painful memories. If the title doesn't include the specific trigger for that post, please check the "labels" listed at the bottom of each individual post. Please let me know if there's anything that I can do to improve these warnings!

Footnotes: You can't make it through grad school without getting persnickety about references. I've provided a list (APA Format) for references used in each blog post.
