We believe that each client deserves the utmost respect, and compassionate care. Therefore, we treat every individual who walks through our doors with genuine unconditional positive regard, empathy, compassion, and consideration. We are passionate about creating a non-judgmental space where our clients can express themselves with unconditional acceptance and feel safe, heard, and validated.
We believe in the value and beauty of diversity, equity, and inclusion. These values are at the core of who we are and central to our mission and work with our clients. We strive to accept and respect the diversity of all our clients – their cultures, languages, lifestyles, identities, ideologies, intellectual capabilities, personalities, and capabilities regardless of the presenting issues. We are committed to creating an inclusive environment that promotes and values diversity.
We believe in the importance of professionalism and holding ourselves consistent with professional standards and our code of ethics. We value honesty, integrity, and confidentiality in all that we do. We strive to reflect personal integrity, honesty and truthfulness through our words and our actions with clients. We recognize the importance of privacy and safety as the basis of effective therapy and therefore make sure to review confidentiality during our first contacts with clients and are available to answer any questions about confidentiality that may arise.
We believe that our expertise and dedication to providing exceptional care are directly linked to continuous professional growth, collaboration with a supportive community of colleagues and our self-care. That said, our psychologists strive to enhance their growth, abilities, and learning as a professional, ensuring they are well informed and up-to-date with the most scientific research and effective evidence-based therapeutic approaches to best suit your needs. Our team also practices consistent and deliberate self-care to allow us to sustain balance and health in our lives and profession, therefore better serving you.
We believe there are many factors that can affect an individual’s mental well-being. These factors include their physical health, personal relationships, work life, lifestyle habits, and even whether they feel aligned with their perceived purpose in life. Rather than looking at one aspect of an individual’s life, we prefer to take a comprehensive holistic approach – a 360-degree view encompassing one’s physical, psychological, emotional, social, and spiritual wellness. Each of these elements can have an impact on our well-being in varying degrees and if one element is compromised, most likely the other elements will be as well. We use this approach to mental health to provide clients with greater productivity, mental clarity, resilience to face challenges, and to provide more pathways to achieve their goals and reach their potential. With each client, we partner and collaborate to help them move forward in the direction they want their life to go.
