Philosophy of Practice

I believe that as human beings we all need basic needs, connections, respect, empathy, autonomy, and understanding in order to gain knowledge, evolve and to reach a state of complete happiness, health, and wellbeing for every individual and familial system. By empowering, advocating, motivating, and encouraging resilience, I will support the idea of multidimensional collaborative change. By challenging stereotypes, avoiding fallacies, and fighting discrimination, oppression, and injustice, no matter the form, I will be a voice for all who cannot advocate for themselves.


Sharaine Conner,

A clinical social worker working for multidimensional collaborative change through the dedicated protection of all people and familial systems who cannot advocate for themselves no matter their sex, behavior, gender, appearance, ability or circumstance.
