Philosophy of Care

Child life specialists work to create mastery and psychosocial safety in hospitalized children. I believe in empowering patients and families to develop coping strategies which help to facilitate positive medical experiences. Often, these coping strategies center around play opportunities for children and self-expression opportunities for adolescents. It is so rewarding to see patients coping in the medical environment and to help them on their journey!
