Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Jensen "Children (people!) do well if they're able* - if they're struggling, it's our job to help them to discover what's getting in the way of successfully meeting the expectations placed on them (and to more clearly define those expectations, too!) Children are their own best experts and almost always have key information to help guide successful intervention - listening to their voices, refining expectations placed on them, and developing solutions that work for all is our main goal!  *This therapeutic - life - approach is firmly rooted in Ross Greene's Collaborative and Proactive Solutions model (see livesintheblanace org website for more details on this fabulous approach to parenting!)"
