I am committed to:
I will do my best to always be honest with you, even if it may be difficult. Sometimes that means pulling from my own experiences personally or professionally to build from solutions others have found useful. It might also mean admitting when I don't know the answer. It might even mean calling you out on things you don't necessarily want to hear. However, this leads me to my next value...
I will always treat you with dignity and respect-even when "calling you out." The information I present for you will be from my own clinical judgment in what you may need to move forward and reach your goals, but I will never "push too hard." I will always respect your decision to wait until you are ready to "go there." This aligns with my favorite quote on the top of the web page. "The journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step." EVERY step we take means you are one step closer. One step at a time and you will get there.
I have a team-mindset. This means that I will always involve you in the process of problem solving. That said, it is also my job to be the best mirror I can for you. This is where my clinical skills come in-helping to open space for some things you may not have thought of and looking from another perspective to help bring clarity and direction.
