As a social worker, I have a deep commitment to the core values of social work, and they are all integrated into my work with clients, as well as how I live my personal life. The following six core principles of the profession guide my practice:
Service, Social Justice, Dignity and Worth of the Person, Importance of Human Relationships, Integrity, Competence.
In addition to this foundation, I use psychoanalytic theory, attachment theory, humanistic approaches, body work and mindfulness, cognitive behavioral therapy, and more. My focus is always on the individual experience, not a diagnosis.
