Jasmine's personal thoughts:

I believe every individual is capable of tasting the passion they have for life in whatever aspect they personally desire. I continuously strive to help individuals become inspired by their own personal strengths and growth. I strongly believe that it is "the therapist's job to do everything in her power not just to promote self-understanding but to encourage risk taking." --Kottler.
