I would say my support style is very interactive and definitely client-centered. What I really strive for is to support my clients in making the best decisions for their care. I ask a lot of prompting questions and work with clients in that way.

When I was a kid, I lived in Bali, Indonesia for a year and I also lived in Brazil for a year. When I came back to the US and I was totally bored and I researched how a teenager could live abroad and found an exchange program. I ended up working at a school teaching English in Brazil when I was 15.
