Professional Objectives
“To provide my clients with the best care possible. My client’s safety and well-being are the top priorities. I help my clients with finding resources to help them in all aspects, in order to help improve their overall well-being. I have worked in the mental health field for a while and it is a passion of mine to help to eliminate the stigma that is associated with mental health. I believe it is important to develop a trusting relationship with each client. I treat each client with the utmost respect and try to help in any way that I can.”

The approach I take when treating my clients is a patient-centered care approach. I feel this type of approach to treatment is the most beneficial to clients, because it is an individualized treatment plan based on the their needs, values, and preferences. This approach to treatment helps to form a respectful client-provider relationship.
