My pronouns are she / her / hers.
I believe that individuals possess the power to change and evolve.
I believe individuals deserve informed choice and advocacy in being linked with treatment options they prefer.
I believe in research and evidence-based approaches, along with consultations with experts in the field and ongoing training to increase knowledge base.
I believe in being reliable, consistent, and committed while implementing individualized services, recognizing that every individual has their own unique needs and timetable.
