Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Drake "Dr. Drake bases her approach on the importance of having a safe and private environment to talk things over and feel understood as a unique individual, in order to change ways of coping that haven't been working.

Talking with a therapist who can listen without judgement and work collaboratively is key to sorting out some of life's difficulties and unhelpful patterns that have been impossible to untangle alone."
