Developmental Disorders: Damien has experience with those with developmental disorders in group home and private home settings. He knows the daily struggles you can face and wants to ensure you have the best quality of life.

Elder Adult Concerns: As we get older, our concerns change from worrying about our kids going to school and starting families of their own to staying healthy and losing friends and family. Damien understands those changing priorities and wants to ensure you stay on a positive path.
