What is important to you, for your client to feel, when working with you?

It's important for me that my clients feel like I am reliable, approachable and invested in their personal achievement like they deserve.

Who do you believe you are for a client as they manage their problems?

I believe that for my clients I am the gateway to achieving positive changes in behavior that allow them to learn and apply these skills in their daily lives.

What drives your passion for seeing clients?

It is exciting to come in to work every day and be around individuals working toward the same goal: improving the lives of our clients by working on specific behaviors, such as communication among other skills.

How do you believe clients "get better"?

I believe clients get better when they have a team of dedicated professionals that strive to individualize client treatment, and achieve client goals. These goals which are necessary to help each client work on skills that will help them become more independent and successful towards their future.
