What Does the M.S. After Your Name Mean?


Updated June 17, 2014

Question: What Does the M.S. After Your Name Mean?
I read your biography and saw the initials M.S. after your name. Does that stand for medical specialist?
Answer: M.S. stands for Master of Science. My post-graduate work is in Community Health Education. I am not a mental health professional, but rather a health educator. For further information about mental health degrees and licenses you can read Psychotherapy 101.
