"Every family and individual has the ability to achieve goals in life. All a person needs is unbiased encouragement and support. This is my motto in life. I have been working with families and children for over seventeen years. I have a Bachelors and Masters in Social Work and have worked with individuals who have been abused, neglected and exploited.

With a lot of support and unconditional positive regard, they can achieve the goals they want."
