THESE ARE THE PRINCIPLES THAT GUIDE
AND MOTIVATE MY EVERY DECISION – AS A
BUSINESS AND AS A PRACTITIONER
We acknowledge that mental health
affects and is regularly influenced by every other part of life. People are complex, as are the problems that bring them to therapy.We honor that. As a result, therapy assessment and treatment takes the whole person into account —physically, spiritually, relationally, emotionally and cognitively.
We approach all our work with a desire to understand and to help you understand who you are and why you are hurting. Our clients are not problems to be solved, but people living dynamic and important stories. Before assessment or symptom management, We are genuinely interested in getting to know you and the perspective from which you approach life.
We want to provide expert and informed services to all of our clients. As a result, we invest regularly in continuing education —researching, connecting professionally, and attending workshops that keep us abreast of the latest news,
interventions and information available regarding mental health. Additionally, we place a priority on self-care, practicing what we teach to ensure we are able to bring our best self to the work of helping others.
We value relationships, inside and outside of the office. We believe that no person is an island and, as a result, strategic relationships are necessary for change to occur. If you are amenable, we will eagerly partner with medical professionals, family members, school personnel, friends and other clinicians (inside and outside the office) to create dynamic and effective action plans.
We see what is, but we have energy around what is next — for you, for my office and for the world. We have seen and heard hard things, but we have also seen the beauty that can come from ashes. So, we trust that change is possible, that better is around the corner, and we lean heavily into that truth when working with you to conceive and follow through with goals.
