I want my patients to know that we will work together as a team to achieve their mental health goals and to achieve an optimal level of functioning even if they have been struggling for a long time - there are obtainable, evidence-based outcomes that really can be achieved. I want my patients to feel heard, validated, and genuinely cared for when they work with me.
