Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Stember "People grow and benefit when they relate to others in their life who have a positive influence, and relating to a therapist, however brief or long, can have the same effect. A goal in psychiatry, as in life, is a self determined, successful functioning and fulfilling existence."
