Philosophy of Care

Having worked in private practice, in the schools and in medial settings, I have an understanding of the multiple worlds in which the child lives. As a result, I treat the whole child, and consult to all those around the child to have an integrated and robust plan to help the child with his emotional, learning and behavioral needs.
