Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Dryden "As a psychotherapist, I believe in working collaboratively with a patient to help them find functional solutions to the issues bringing them to the therapist's office. I work with the patient to assist them to find the most optimal mode of expression, through art, play, creative writing, etc., Dynamics of culture also are taken into serious consideration, as I believe appreciating a patient's culture can have a positive impact on the therapeutic relationship, as well as promoting understanding."
