My philosophy of care is holistic in nature. Our young people face significant challenges today and my goal is to provide support and guidance to the young person - and his or her family - to navigate adolescence. Eventually, adolescents must transition to adulthood and we, as the adults in their lives, must help them do this in a way that recognizes their unique strengths, fosters their potential and prepares them to experience the joys and challenges of adulthood. To do this, we cannot overemphasize any one part of their development - every part must be acknowledged as it shapes the individual and eventually has an impact on his or her well being and decision-making.
