My Care Philosophy
"Integrative, eclectic approach using evidence-based treatments within a developmental, trauma-informed, bio-psycho-socio-spiritual model."
"We grow through knowledge and nurturance."
SOME OF MY FAVORITE QUOTES:
“Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.”
"The cave you fear to enter holds the treasure you seek."
- Joseph Campbell
"There is only one corner of the universe you can be certain of improving, and that's your own self."
"The good thing about science is that it's true whether you believe it or not."
-Neil DeGrasse Tyson
"Life is what happens when you're busy making other plans."
“Change is inevitable, but growth is optional.”
