Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
The experience I gained during the 19 years I was a live-in houseparent in a group home for troubled adolescent boys is invaluable to me. In addition to dealing with the boys, who came to us primarily through the juvenile justice or social services systems, I also dealt with the resultant and/or causative issues within their families. The most priceless lessons I gained from this unique experience, however, were about myself. The boys were my teachers/guides/gurus who led me on a road of self-exploration and discovery. It is this sense of willingness to learn from each other that I bring to the therapy situation. In addition, along with compassionate support, I believe the most important gift I can give my clients is my honest, authentic feedback.
