    Key values of our brand:

    Client Care: We are mindful of our clients in everything that we do.  We value them as people and our relationship with them. We strive to meet them where they are at and help them reach their goals. 

    Integrity:  We are guided by our own strong personal ethics and the ethics of our profession. We stay accountable and follow through on all policies and procedures. 

    Continuing Education: We strive to always be growing and remain teachable. We seek out new ideas, concepts, models, and tools.   

    Research based concrete skills and tools: We believe in giving our clients tangible and practical ways to change. We teach them ways that they can be, think, and approach their world in better ways. We provide them with concrete tools they can apply outside the therapy room to maintain the changes they seek.

    Our Culture:

    Teamwork and Community: We work hard to create a safe environment to grow (as a person and therapist), share thoughts and opinions, and ask questions.  We encourage each person to seek out other team members for help, support, or encouragement whenever needed.  

    Connection: We value creating a warm and welcoming environment where we can have fun while we work.  When not in sessions with a client our doors are always open to easily create opportunities to connect, get to know each other, and spend time together.  We hold quarterly team lunches and quarterly team events outside the office. 

    Open and honest communication (radical candor):  We value honesty and transparency in all our communication. We are willing to have difficult conversations when needed instead of choosing to avoid, hide, or gossip to maintain a false sense of comfort.  We value questions, concerns, challenges, and opinions from every member of our staff. 

    Diversity and Inclusion: Each member of our team brings their own unique personality (personally and professionally), history, experience, and perspective. We appreciate the opportunity to learn from each person and love the ways they contribute to our ever evolving system.
