I believe that everyone needs someone to help them through various facets of life. I believe that I am walking in my purpose that has been predestined for me. My objective in providing therapy is to assist others with learning how to help themselves, be empowered, and in turn help others. My goal is to help other clinicians to be effective by providing education, sharing experience and resources, and empowerment. “If it is to encourage, then give encouragement; if it is giving, then give generously; if it is to lead, do it diligently; if it is to show mercy, do it cheerfully.” Romans 12:8.
