Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Karen Stickel "I am attentive to what your needs may be and willing to first help you to identify and express what they may be. Once that is complete, we can mutually arrive at treatment goals and a plan for achieving them. You can expect that I will provide you with plenty of information and resources. I encourage you to provide active feedback to me about goals, treatment plans and your progress. No two clients are the same and no two courses of treatment are either, so your treatment will be uniquely tailored to your needs and what you want to achieve. We are all dealing with change in our lives. Many people have the ability to cope with normal change in their lives, but are experience extraordinary circumstance, for which their normal coping skills are inadequate. Others lack the self-confidence in their ability to cope with even the normal stress of life. In either case, I will help you to discover ways you to be proactive and  to cope with and manage change in your life."
