Philosophy of Care
My philosophy of mental health care centers on the empowerment of individuals in a holistic manner. I am committed to building an empathetic relationship with each client; to explore their strengths and limitations; to build competency and resiliency; and to share strategies that enhance personal growth. Setting therapeutic goals with each client, facilitates the process of discovering who they are and how to achieve their goals. Diagnostically, I emphasize the mind/body connection which makes each of us who we are. I encourage my clients to make a committment to strive to reach their highest potential. I honor the privledge entrusted to me in sharing this time together.
