Our Guiding Values

Scroll or Click Here for Main Menu

Holism

We understand that wellness is comprised of intimately interconnected life areas and circumstances. Thus, we do not focus on just one aspect of a person, unit, or organization's healing without considering and developing a plan to address all aspects of that person’s, unit, or organization's health.

Healing

We believe that healing “is the personal experience of the transcendence of suffering.” (Egnew, 2005) Thus, we value our role in the healing process which aims to restore one back to their original state or a renewed state of well-being to reach one’s desired outcomes. This is fostered by our following two values.

Empathy

The ability to gain others' perspective or understand circumstances through assessment of their feelings and needs.

Cultural

and Socioemotional Responsiveness

We commit to providing a culturally and socioemotional safe and supportive environment that is highly self and socially aware and embeds the principles, tools, and skills of emotional intelligence and cultural competence in our practice.

Couples Sessions

Our couples sessions are proactive and strength-based sessions that involve helping both individuals increase emotional intelligence (EI). We will not focus on solely uncovering and addressing the dissatisfaction and distress in the relationship but will use EI to help the couple gain a better understanding of who they are as individuals and as a couple, as well as how they work together as a unit. Not only will we work to assist the couple in improving their skills and/or alleviating their presenting symptoms, but we are also invested in helping the relationship reach a better and healthier level of functioning. All couples are welcomed!
