Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Topel "In my experience, problems that seem resolvable become resolved, or become non-problems through listening, thinking, feeling and finding new insights and understandings. These lead to new responses to stuck situations, more effective behaviors, and greater productivity and life satisfaction. Relationships are often key to satisfaction, and effective relationship skills can be learned or sharpened. I am invested in my clients and in the their needs and goals."
