“WE HELP CLIENTS HEAL AND  GROW IN THEIR MENTAL, EMOTIONAL, AND BEHAVIORAL HEALTH
THROUGH THERAPEUTIC COUNSELING RELATIONSHIPS.”

The work is to help people grow in relationships- namely those with one’s self, with others, and with God.  We offer support and collaboration, helping people develop psychological skills to deal with life’s challenges more effectively. We also help people clarify what is truly important and meaningful to them and what are helpful things to let go. This helps people move forward in their life with courage.

CORE VALUES:

RESPECT

This means respecting clients, team members, families, school leaders and partners… but also ideas such as truth and integrity in our work.

PERSONAL AUTONOMY

We cannot control many circumstances outside of us or any other person beside us.  I have the opportunity to control me- as I have been made free to choose.

CATCH AND RELEASE

Is it yours? If yes- catch it, and take responsibility. If not, release it. Let others own what is theirs.

CONTRIBUTION, NOT CONSUMPTION

We were made to contribute and create- and consumption is best when fueling our vision and action to contribute.  We aim to contribute to others’ lives, to best practices, to our own health, to God’s bigger story.

KEEP IT SIMPLE

Simple is better.  If parts of our practice and work are more complicated than necessary or have an unclear purpose- we aim towards a more simple solution.

CHOOSE

We operate best when choosing based on what we believe is best, and not based on outside forces.  Choose, move on it, evaluate, change is necessary.

COME TOGETHER

While our work is many times based on an individual work- we are always better together- meaning we do not hesitate to engage the help and support available to us, or to refer our work when someone else is a better choice for a client.

GROWTH OVER CHANGE

Change is inevitable.  Growth requires a choice.  We aim to grow and to help our clients grow.
