Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Shealah West "I believe in trying differently, rather than harder. Different approaches, with different mindsets, thinking "out of the box" can create change in even the most difficult situations. I have worked extensively with high-risk children, adolescents and their families. I believe in the wrap-around approach for services and work closely with schools, court systems, social services and parents to improve the lives of children and the family as a whole. When conflicts within the family arise, support from a therapist skilled in assisting families with multiple concerns can be incredibly helpful. A skilled therapist will assist you in identifying primary concerns and developing goals to achieve desired outcomes while working toward improved relationships within your family unit. Commitment to making necessary changes and a desire for a deeper, more meaningful relationship among family members is extremely important to success. I would love to help your family become a more caring, nurturing and respectful unit where all members feel supported and validated and everyone understands the importance of hard work, consistency and diligence. Call today to get started on your family transformation!""
