The center offers a range of services, including individual and group therapy, single-session therapy, assessment, crisis appointments, case management, and outreach presentations.
We strive to create an inclusive and equitable environment, and engage in culturally sensitive practice for clients, staff, and trainees. As a staff, we value clear, respectful, and compassionate communication. Warm collegial relationships exist on a strong foundation of respect and openness. We appreciate individual differences and opportunities to learn from each other. Life-long learning, self-reflection, and openness to feedback are some of the shared values. Changes are embraced and everyone’s input matters. With an open-door policy, we often consult with each other or just talk for fun between sessions. We work hard; at the same time, work-life balance is very important to all of us.
