I strongly believe that every individual is unique and no family is the same as another. In my profession, I have had the pleasure to work with a diverse group of individuals (adults and children) and families in both Spanish and English. My work assists in guiding my clients though challenges, and working toward a sustainable end goal that creates a more positive outlook on life.
I work with my clients to develop their own inner strength. I want them to gain the tools they need to go out into society and not feel hindered by the challenges they have faced. Instead I want to motivate, encourage, and ultimately assist my clients to dive into society with the knowledge that their challenges do not define who they are, rather they are aspects of their life and family dynamics. Working towards acceptance and being open to change is not an easy process, but it is feasible. I believe that there's a reason for everything, and that no one person is the same. Also, every voice, especially the voice of the child(ren), is important.
