Professional Philosophy

I believe that all people have the capacity to live happy and fulfilling lives. My role is to provide support, validation, and help individuals develop the necessary skills to achieve their goals. I work collaboratively with individuals and families in developing treatment goals, as I believe they are the expert on their own life and family. With support and guidance I believe that people are able to improve their quality of life and relationships with one another.
