Associate Social Worker
With over 14 years of working with youth and families, Charlee Ganzer is
a major part of her patients’ lives as they seek health and clarity.

interaction style as “solution-focused,” but the solutions
are as holistic and unique as each of her patients.

sense of self while providing a richer, more fulfilling life. Community
also engenders commitment, which can help drive patients further towards
