Supervisor, TAP

Professional Philosophy

People have internal resources and strengths. We arise out of a family system that helps shape who we are and what we bring to future relationships, but we are not solely predetermined by that. I practice from a strengths-based, developmental, family systems perspective. We will build a course of healing together, collaboratively.
