"One special aspect of Rochester Financial Empowerment Center that I am passionate about is the client-counselor relationship. Changes and empowerment happen when respect and trust are established. Our goal is to be interested in our clients, to hear them and to see them as valued individuals. My hope is that they would leave the session thinking she/he really understands me, I have options, and I see a path forward."
