Treatment Philosophy

Our goal is to provide you with immediate access to psychological services that are of the highest quality, affordable, and offered within your home community. We offer flexible times for appointments and only employ the most highly trained professionals.

In order for people to grow, change, heal, and thrive, they need to be treated with empathy, compassion, and dignity as a human being. This is why our treatment philosophy takes a humanistic and holistic approach to helping our clients improve their overall well-being. We help people because we attempt to provide them with what they need but are lacking in their current lives.

Individualized Philosophy of Treatment

Because each person is unique, with his and her own personal history, perspective, and worldview, we do not treat people as if they are all alike. And we do not believe that one form of treatment applies to everyone.

Unlike some modes of practice that boast a quick-fix or promise immediate symptom relief, we believe that the only way to achieve permanent and positive change is to address the cause of one's difficulties. This is why our approach to treatment is eclectic, realistic, and tailored to the distinct needs of each person. Our staff are trained in multiple modes of therapy and evidence-based interventions that cater to your specific context and life situation where your individual goals and expectations can be realized.

This requires that you feel listened to, understood, validated, and authentically cared about in a humanistic fashion. This transpires within a safe and emotionally supportive environment where conflicts are identified, expressed, understood, and transcended through insight, increased coping, problem resolution, and behavioural change.

We provide guidance and direction when requested, support and validation when needed, insight and knowledge in the face of uncertainty, meaning when none seems to exist, and engender hope that things can be different.
