The AllWorld agenda is not to push a particular methodology. Rather than using a one-size-fits-all approach, science, art, and high quality collaborative relationships are leveraged to create a new path with and for each client. Because the only agenda is striving to help you reach or maintain excellence and well-being in the most effective and ethical ways, I also actively seek the best referrals when a client need emerges that is outside of my range of competencies. Think: a Yale graduated psychiatrist who is also a seasoned triathlete and can speak fluently with international clients in five languages.
