Commit to Excellent, Client-Centered Care

To achieve excellent care, we see clients from a holistic perspective and commit to ongoing professional and personal development, collaboration over competition, and giving and receiving feedback. Every path to healing is unique and we adjust our approaches to fit each person's needs and where they are in their journey.

Respect and Inclusion is our Foundation

We honor the inherent dignity and worth of everyone who seeks our services. We create a safe, non-judgmental, compassionate, and inclusive environment where people can openly share their experiences, thoughts, and feelings without fear or shame.

Build Trust

Trust is the cornerstone of effective therapy. We take seriously our responsibility to clients and ensure they feel heard, understood, and valued.

Engage our Communities

Mental health concerns are enmeshed within people's larger social contexts. We give back to our communities and improve the social, economic, and other structural challenges impinging on people’s lives through active involvement in outreach, education, stigma reduction, and public health efforts.
