Meredith Gordon Resnick, LCSW, earned her MSW at San Diego State University with an emphasis in mental health. Her current work focuses on trauma-informed therapy through the expressive arts including writing, drawing and collage.
Meredith did her clinical internship at the County of San Diego Loma Portal Adolescent Inpatient Unit, a locked psychiatric facility. She went on to work in peds at the City of Hope, where, like in her internship, issues of treatment compliance, identity, power and control permeated the clinical work with these young patients. She has also worked as a family therapist, and with older adults at end of life.
For a time, Meredith transitioned away from clinical work to explore writing, and wrote extensively for large healthcare systems, physician practices, school districts, and the US military. She’s worked in the pharmaceutical industry doing editorial work on HCP and consumer brand launches.
As a writer and clinician, Meredith’s goal is to create connections between human beings and their patterns of behavior, between the universal and the personal, the heart and the mind.
