My philosophy is non-judgmental. After all, we are all victims of our experiences and we are all what some would call "a little Crazy". The question is to what degree do our experiences and uniqueness enhance or interfere with our ability to thrive. Thriving is what I hope to help the people who come me do more of. I believe balance (in all things) is foundational to wellness.
