Organization Mission Statement: I am dedicated to provide supportive, healthy, and caring services for people who are struggling with life circumstances. My approach when working with clients is to combine an outlook of strength-based and systemic perspectives, while providing support and feedback to help clients resolve current problems and understand long-standing patterns. I also like to explore how individuals can shift their perspective to envision daily life as a meaningful spiritual adventure.
