Our Philosophy

“I have dedicated my professional life to learning about and caring for people with neuropsychiatric illness. During my education and training, the emphasis has been on memorization, facts, diagrams.  When you begin to care for patients, you realize that treating human beings is far more complex than any diagram.  You must treat each patient with respect for their own individuality, their own method of healing.  This is frustrating and yet gratifying- when you truly find a way to help a single human being, the reward is monumental.”
