"It is important to me to develop a therapeutic relationship with my patients to provide the best care. I respect and encourage my patients to be involved in their treatment as I feel this provides the best outcome for the patient. Also, being a mom, I also understand the importance of working with not just the patient, but also with the family to provide the best care. I enjoy working in the out-patient setting, for it allows me to see long-term improvements in wellness and mental health"
