My Approach to Care
Holistic means that I look at each client as a whole person and all aspects of their life. Beyond the psychological and clinical domains, this may include family and social relationships, work or job, financial concerns, living situation, physical health and safety, spiritual beliefs and practices, recreational activities and creative pursuits.
Integrated and comprehensive means that I integrate all of the standard medical and pharmacological treatments with a broad range of lifestyle, nutritional, expressive, rehabilitative and complementary approaches to health and wellness.
Person-guided means that each client is responsible for guiding their own care as part of a collaborative process. Each client defines their own goals for treatment based on their needs, strengths, and preferences - in ways they determine are most appropriate for them.
Recovery-focused means that I strive to empower each client with the skills and supports that they need to mobilize their own personal resources and achieve their life goals.
