My Approach to Helping
I believe that my clients (children, too) already have great wisdom within, therefore, I use a client-centered approach to highlight and foster trust in this wise, inner self. I like to focus on what is positive and working, while joining my clients in a collaborative effort to solve problems and become better and more assertive communicators or parents. I am relaxed and humorous, but I don't hesitate to offer information, based on my training and extensive experience with children and families, as well as related suggestions and guidance.
