Philosophy of Practice: “I believe in the importance of strong early relationships and attachements. I believe that every child wants and deserves to have those and the impact of early loss, neglect or trauma can make forming those relationships challenging at times. I work closely with kids and families to understand their developmental stages and current needs to help them be successful. In working with kids and families I stress trust, understand the function of behavior and working to meet kids where they are to help them grow”
