Our Values

Compassion: We use compassion and empathy as tools to make connections with our clients and to invite our clients to be vulnerable.

Respect: We strive to serve all clients with respect and dignity.

Simplicity: We seek to operate with simplicity as a living example of what we advocate for clients. Living simply provides focus and clarity on our priorities.

Trust: We believe personal growth and the therapeutic relationship are founded on trust.

Ethics & Integrity: We are committed to adhering to high ethical standards and providing honest and consistent services to our clients.

Health: We strive to support clients to be the healthiest they can be: emotionally, physically, and spiritually.

Our Approach

We believe our work with clients is a collaborative endeavor.  More specifically, we seek to collaborate with those who are motivated and curious to change.  We bring empathy, expertise, and energy to every session. Successful therapeutic work is founded on a trusting relationship between therapist and client.

Our team uses an integrated theoretical and treatment approach to understand each client, and together we create individual and/or family goals.  While each clinician has their own style, we collectively draw from Developmental, Family Systems, Interpersonal, and Psychodynamic theories in practice.  Play therapy and art-based interventions are often used in our work with children. Our team also utilizes empirically supported, evidenced-based treatments when clinically appropriate:

  • Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT): Skills focused to understand the connection between thoughts, feelings, and behavior.
  • Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT): Skills driven treatment to tolerate intense emotions and behaviors, live mindfully, and maintain relationships.
  • Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT): Specialized treatment to address trauma-related symptoms.
