It is important to me to develop a therapeutic relationship with my patients to provide the best care. I respect and encourage my patients to be involved in their treatment as I feel this provides the best outcome for the patient. I enjoy being able to work with my patients, seeing long-term improvements in their mental health. I feel it is very important to use integrative care and evidence-based treatment. As a mom, I also understand the importance of working with not just the patient, but families to provide the best care.
