A servant himself, Justin seeks to support others who provide service for there is no greater calling than to serve and support those who in turn support others. Throughout his career he has always focused well beyond the identified client, knowing that the system needs help, not just ‘the one with the problem.’
In understanding the system, we can understand why an individual reacts to it the way they do. This applies to any family as well. Though one member may have more going on, the whole family does better when all members seek support.
