Philosophy of Care

I aim to treat all children and families with respect and compassion, taking into account personal beliefs and cultural differences. I encourage children to voice their concerns in whatever way they are able, helping them to become their own advocates as they grow. I hope that children leave my practice as young adults who are confident in managing their healthcare needs.
