Quote of the Day: “I have to understand that my client is with themselves 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Who knows them better? Themselves. And I think when I empower my client, especially a young teenager, when I say that to them, they feel respected and heard and validated. And those are the three things that teenagers need the most."
