Our Services

Our Values

Empathy

We believe that empathy is essential to any effective mental health intervention.

Autonomy

People have the right to make their own choices, even if we disagree with them.

Collaboration

We believe people have valuable wisdom and insight into their own lives and should be consulted on how to move forward.

Trama-Informed

We actively acknowledge the pervasive impact of trauma and the necessity of creating safe environments.

Harm Reduction

We do not view addiction or substance use as moral failings and recognize that abstinence is not always possible or helpful.

Anti-Oppressive

We acknowledge and talk about how sex, gender, class, race, ability, health status, body size, religion, etc. affect peoples’ experiences.

Strengths-Based

We highlight the ways people show strength in their suffering even when its hard to see.
