Desire to Help Others Heal

Doug’s motivation stems from his desire to help others. Similarly, it is very rewarding for him to witness individuals grow, heal, and achieve their goals. Not only does he provide quality care himself, but he also enjoys training other healthcare professionals to do the same. In doing so, he makes sure that mental health is taken into account in all healthcare fields.

ODD is one of the most common behavioral disorders among kids. Unfortunately, people exhibiting these behaviors are sometimes mislabeled as "naughty" or "bad," which can be damaging.

Regulate your emotions and then engage in co-regulation with your teen from a place of curiosity and compassion.
