Wow! What an important and fragile job you have and to make the most healthy and economically sound choices are rarely self-sufficient. I worked with multiple families at Children's Memorial Hospital, Miami Dade Department of Human Services, and Cook County Hospital Children's Psychology Department. I was enamored by your resiliency as well as your persistence in setting your child up for a better future. Whether managing education, balancing family life, or maintaining work/flight schedules that are necessary to financially keep your children or relationship healthily developing is incredibly difficult for all parents involved. So I ALWAYS make sure that I attend to were you are at in mind, body, and spirit.
Part of my psychology is making sure that you don't forget about yourself. Both parents or single parented families fall victim to the pace of life and the incredible needs of their child/children. I can work with you on child management and help you find some "time" to balance your own body/mind/soul so that everything becomes more healthy.
As parents, you have enough challenges with children that do not meet criteria for any diagnosis, and for those of you that struggle with children that do have behavior concerns at home, school, or socially, my heart goes out to you, my staff will be sensitive to those needs, and I will be direct - honest in aim of making sure you see your importance.
- IN MY MANY YEARS AT CHILDREN'S MEMORIAL HOSPITAL, I WAS THE ONLY THERAPIST TO HAVE A LARGE DONATION MADE IN MY HONOR AND THAT WAS THE MOMENT THAT I REALIZED THAT I "WALK THE WALK" AND WILL GO THE EXTRA MILE TO MAKE SURE THINGS ARE AS JUST AS POSSIBLE.
- YOU WILL NOT BE JUDGED BY ME ---- PERIOD.
- YOU WILL NOT BE ALONE BECAUSE I WILL SHOW AND MODILE TECHNIQUES THAT HAVE BEEN PROVEN TO BE EFFECTIVE - THESE ARE MODIFIED FOR EACH CHILD.
- I WILL COME TO YOUR HOUSE AND "911 NANNY" YOU IF THAT HELPS. IN MY PHILOSOPHY YOU DO WHAT IT TAKES, WITHIN CERTAIN LIMITS, TO MAKE SURE CHANGE OCCURS.
