Links and Resources

With many issues, I believe it is important to work collaboratively with other professionals in the community to best support the well being of clients. I have built positive relationships with psychologists, psychiatrists, nurse practioners, schools, primary care physicians, occupational therapists, and other health care providers to support the needs of clients. I am also available to collaborate with providers whom my clients have already established a working relationship.
