Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Robert Smith "Our approach to treatment is based on each individual patient's presentation of the problems or concerns that they are currently experiencing.  Each person is unique, so treatment is individualized based on your specific needs.  We work together with you in a collaborative fashion, with respect, in a private honest manner.  We follow the codes of ethics of the National Association of Social Workers, American Psychological Association and Mental Health state and federal laws.  Our goal is to provide you with the best care in a solution-oriented manner.  To do so, we will ask you to tell us how you view your problems and concerns, and what you would specifically like help with to change or manage your situation. In that way we will have a clear direction to go towards. We will be patient with you and not judge what you tell us."
