I am a person centered practitioner. I do not fit people into programs that are delivered carbon copied from one person to another. The information that I deliver is tailor made for the person, couple or family unit that I assist. That makes me very effective. Because of the ability to assess people and situations quickly, I am often called to offer opinions in court related cases. I do not hesitate to assist my clients in this manner and think that more "professionals" should do the same. I truly believe that when power is used unjustly against my clients, mental health is NOT possible and addiction and behavioral problems are inevitable. I will not set my clients up for failure by refusing to stand by them and believe that until the court is interested in the WHY of people's behavior, there will continue to be injustice in our courtrooms and no remedy to the problems that bring clients there in the first place.
In every circumstance that I have practiced within communities, I have found that it is ONLY through social interaction that we learn about ourselves and the world in which in which we live. Because of the political nature of the environment in which we find ourselves, where financial resources dictate the ways in which we are viewed and judged, many of us suffer under a scrutiny that ostracizes us from full participation. The many symptoms that result are reflective of the social chaos in which we are being socialized. Strategic positioning, a method that can bring hope for many, begins with refusing to accept the labels and diagnoses imposed that continue to limit our human potential! Personal responsibility must include a strict adherence to boundaries that limit the influence of a culture that insists on blaming the individuals in its midst for the pathology that our society has created!
