I realized that we, as individuals are all different and all “move to the beat of our own drum”. Thus, I believe all clients should be treated as individuals and should be respected regardless of beliefs, sexual orientation, gender, etc. My theoretical approach is person-centered, meaning that YOU are the star of the sessions, I work for you!
