    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 client tangible and practical ways to change.

    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 alway open to easily create opportunities to connect, get to know each other and spend time together. 

    Open and honest communication (radical candor):  We value honesty and transparency in all our communication. We are willing to have the 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.
