About Lucy Papillon

I am a clinical and media psychologist and have been in practice for over 20 years. I have been appointed to medical staffs, had a position at a high risk prison, developed and directed an inpatient psychiatric program at a prestigious hospital, and been on national and local television and radio programs all over America.
