Patient Care Philosophy: "The individuals I have had the privilege of serving over the years are some of the strongest and bravest people I know. It is difficult to reach out to a stranger to tell your story and ask for help. I treat people the way I would hope to be treated. My philosophy is to be genuine, to be a good listener, and to help clients see the strengths they already have to improve their quality of life and make changes in problematic areas. No one is immune to needing help."
