Dr. Geller's Guiding Philosophy:
" I believe that each and every child has the capacity to lead a happy, fulfilling life. However, some children might need a bit more assistance in finding their path. It is our responsibility as caring adults to ensure that children are given the opportunity to thrive.
I view every child as a unique individual. I make it my personal goal to help them and those surrounding them find the path that bests meets their needs.
Each path looks different. Each child has a different history. Each child operates within a different environment. Each child has a different story to tell.
Therefore I do not take any shortcuts. Regardless of the child's past, we can work together to brighten his or her future.
