Our vision is of healthy, resilient and connected families &  communities. Our mission is to nurture the transformation and resilience of children, youth, and families, by fostering a deep connection to ones’ self, others, and the natural world around them.


Our Wellness Team

With almost 40+ years of combined experience, our Clinical Team of Masters-Level Registered Psychotherapists & Registered Social Workers are dedicated to providing evidenced-based mental health solutions for children, teens, and families.

 

We believe supports towards wellness should be…

HOLISTIC & INTEGRATIVE

We understand and acknowledge the connection between mind, body, heart & soul and support making lifestyle changes that enhance these connections. We work collaboratively with other Health Care Professionals to develop a circle of care around your child and family.

FAMILY & COMMUNITY-BASED 

We see your child within the context of your family and community and extend our support to their support system. From providing hope to parents, to increasing knowledge in schools and community agencies, we see these as key factor to building a child’s resiliency for life-long wellness.

COMPASSIONATE & WARM

We foster deep connections to each of children, youth, and families we support. We care for you deeply. We foster trusting, attuned, and open relationships with the clients we serve. We want you to feel like you found you village of like-minded people. We extend a warm welcome for you to join us.

RELATIONAL & CONNECTION-BASED

We research and practice under an Attachment-Developmental-Based framework that acknowledges the power of our earliest relationships as the greatest source of healing and growth.  Building trusted connections with the families we support is the first step to uncovering healthier, and more meaningful ways, of relating to ourselves & others.

EXPERIENTIAL-BASED CARE

We see the most impactful changes occur when therapeutic approaches support opportunities to practice new ways relating to thoughts, feelings, and others. We are trained in and use experiential approaches such as: emotion-focused therapy, play-based therapy, nature-guided therapy, animal-assisted therapy, and relational therapy.
