My core values include authenticity, connection and growth. Relationship Development Intervention (RDI) aligns with these core values. I use RDI to guide clients in reaching their fullest potential through building strong personal connections. Additionally, I support clients in further developing communication, social and daily living skills to increase independence. I’m passionate about incorporating clients interests, strengths and goals into therapy to cultivate a positive, individualized experience. I love to see my clients learn and grow through interactions with others as well as the world around them. My favorite aspect of my work at FGTC is sharing in “we” moments with my clients. I believe that all humans desire acceptance, love and connection as well as a sense of belonging.
